East Windsor Earth Day Recycling Poster Winners

September 29, 2021

EAST WINDSOR, NJ (MERCER)–Mayor Janice S. Mironov recognized the elementary school winners of the East Windsor Township Earth Day Recycling Poster Contest at a recent Council meeting.  The theme of the poster is to promote any or all of the “4 R’s” of the East Windsor Township Recycling Program Logo, which are:

            RECYCLE all items that can be recycled.

            REUSE other items rather than throw them out in the trash.

            REDUCE materials into their homes that then have to be disposed of.

            REBUY buy goods that use recycled materials.

Winners from Grades K – 2 and Grades 3 – 5 all received Mayoral Certificates of Recognition and gift certificates to Barnes and Noble, donated by corporate sponsor Shiseido America.

            Mayor Mironov congratulated all of the students stating, “we are very proud of all of the students who participated in the Township Earth Day Recycling Poster Contest, and who demonstrated an interest at a very young age in encouraging recycling as an important tool for creating a greener environment.  The posters designed by the students creatively and colorfully serve to remind everyone of the importance of practicing and promoting recycling to help protect and preserve our environment.  All of the participating students did an outstanding job and are to be commended for their great interest in recycling.”
