DNREC offers Bin It to Win It at Coast Day Oct. 1

October 1, 2017

DNREC's Solid and Hazardous Waste Management Section Recycling Program will unveil its newest campaign to clean the stream - Single Stream Recycling - at Coast Day 2017. Stop by the booth and find out the latest news, events and messaging to help Delaware's citizens recycling smarter and better. Also, play the DNREC Bin It to Win It game and race against the clock to sort waste into the correct bins. Win a prize by showing recycling skills.

The Bin It to Win It recycling game will educate event participants in a way that is interactive and entertaining, thus increasing retention of the learning as well as the likelihood that event participants will relay messages to their families and become more knowledgeable about protecting Delaware's coastline, ocean and beaches.

The Bin It to Win It game will pit participants against each other to sort through trash quickly and accurately - what can be recycled or what cannot - and deposit the trash in the correct bin: trash or recycling after cleaning. After the two-minute time limit is up, a referee will review the bins and pull out any incorrect items and explain why they are wrong. The team or person with the most correctly sorted items will be announced as the winner. All participants will receive a special prize.

Coast Day will be held Sunday, Oct. 1, at the University of Delaware Lewes campus.
