A BIG THANK YOU
to the Stanwood Youth Football League for caring about the Earth!
Football games are a great collection place for collecting a variety of “would be garbage”. We all don’t realize that our garbage can earn points!
Points for football is earned through Energy Bar Wrappers, Snack Bags, Candy Wrappers.
A recycle station is provided to help keep the Earth cleaner with the following collection receptacles:
- Aluminum Cans, Foil, Pans
- Plastics: Hard, Flexible
- Clean Paper, Glass, Cardboard
- Caps & Straws
A Rinsing bin is used by the attendant to clean coffee cups, yogurt containers, etc that would have been tossed in the garbage.
On the average 6 bags of Recycleable items are taken away from an entire game day. Yet only 1/2 a bag of garbage actually goes to the waste dumpster!
Often someone walks up to the station and says it’s all garbage….yet 90% can be sorted into the recycle containers. I think we are all learning something new!
Thanks to the Stanwood Youth Football staff for the opportunity to set up a recycle station and working together to make the world a better place.
The feedback has been fantastic and very thankful.
