“Kids, Cans and Ca$h” Contest Kicks Off Its 7th Year!

Schools Can Earn Money While Protecting the Environment -

Elementary schools in Guilford County can earn money for their school and help protect the environment by collecting aluminum cans for the Kids, Cans & Ca$h Elementary School Recycling Challenge. The three schools that collect the most aluminum cans by weight will win a recycling trophy and a big pizza party for all students!

Winners will be announced on America Recycles Day, November 15.

All schools will be paid for the aluminum cans they collect and will be recognized for their participation.
