CNMI Recycles Day

Beautify CNMI! invites the community to join the CNMI Recycles Day festivities this Saturday, Nov 18, 9am, @ the Lower Base Transfer Station.

Come and celebrate the phenomenal efforts of our schools, our families, and our businesses whose combined efforts during the two-month contest resulted in the collection of over 260,000 lbs (that's over a quarter million!) of recyclable cardboard, paper, glass, plastic, and metals. That's 200,000 pounds of materials that can now be processed and converted into useful products, NOT dumped in our landfill.

In addition to recognizing all the school participants and supporters who have made the CNMI Recycles Day campaign a phenomenal success, we will be awarding prizes to the top three schools with the highest recycling rates per student, plus five honorable mentions. The top three prizes are as follows:
  • 1st place -- $600, 30 waterpark passes to Pacific Islands Club, 20 seedlings for campus beautification
  • 2nd place -- $425, 25 waterpark passes to Hotel Nikko Saipan, 20 seedlings for campus beautification
  • 3rd place -- $225, 20 backpacks from Ginen Saipan, and 20 seedlings for campus beautification

The CNMI Recycles Day celebration will kick off at 9am with a Proclamation signing by the Acting Governor, and will also include educational exhibits, hands-on demonstrations and games, great entertainment, and tours of the Transfer Station. The event is free and open to the community; light refreshments will be served.

Thank you very much and we hope to see you there!
