CAMPAIGN: Republic Services in the Community

CONTENT: Multimedia with summary

The Huntsville, AL local high school, James Clemens High, was looking for a clever way to raise money so that every classroom could get recycling bins. Republic Services works with the schools to help educate and implement recycling programs and Republic’s local Huntsville division was excited to help with fundraising ideas. They came up with a “Kiss the Pig” contest to help raise the funds so that every classrooms has its own recycling bin. The school sat out gallon jugs and collected money from the student for two weeks. The two “lucky” teachers who received the most money had to “pucker up” for a great cause. The high school’s principal and band director were the lucky winners. The project raised more than enough money to get the bins and will use what’s left to purchase additional recycling containers for the school grounds.
