Starting Friday, high schools throughout Hawaii can win up to $3,000 toward their Project Graduation event by recycling their beverage containers. Registered schools that redeem HI-5 beverage containers between March 7 and April 15 will be eligible.
The competition, organized by Retail Merchants of Hawaii and Reynolds Recycling, will award a $3,000 grand prize and a $1,500 second-place prize based on dollar value and a $1,000 wild card drawing for all other participating schools.
All Hawaii high schools are eligible. Registration forms must be received by the Retail Merchants of Hawaii by April 11. Winners will be announced on Earth Day, April 22.
RMH and Reynolds Recycling have held this competition for the past three years. In 2013, Moanalua High School, Waimea High School, Kalaheo High School and Assets School were awarded prize money, collecting a total of 78,000 HI-5 containers (40,000 aluminum, 28,000 plastic and 10,000 glass) over a seven-week period.
