Each year hundreds of schools across British Columbia join the Return-It School Contest.  The contest is an opportunity for students to take their recycling programs to another level and to have these initiatives recognized.  There are amazing success stories coming from elementary, middle, and high schools despite the challenges that 2020 has presented so far.
