New Jersey DEP recognizes recycling leaders

Recyclebank, TerraCycle and Sharp Electronics Corp. were among the 10 winners of awards presented by New Jersey’s Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). Students from across the state were also honored for writing poems about recycling. Students wrote about ways their families recycle, why they think recycling is important, and encouraging everyone to recycle to preserve resources and protect the environment.

Awards were presented during the 31st New Jersey Recycling Symposium and Awards Luncheon. This annual event is co-sponsored by DEP and the Association of New Jersey Recyclers.
