The Go Green Gloucester Advisory Committee, working with local school children, recently placed new recycling slogan signs at local convenience centers.

The committee members called on school children for slogan ideas and more than 100 creative and catchy phrases were submitted, a release said.

Winners by schools included:

"Recycle when you’re through to make something new!," Botetourt Elementary;

"Don’t be lazy … Recycle like crazy!," Achilles Elementary;

"Recycle today for a better tomorrow!," Peasley Middle School;

"When you don’t just throw it away, you SAVE the day!", Petsworth Elementary;

"When you refuse to reuse, it’s our earth you abuse!," Abingdon Elementary; and,

"It may not be hip, it may not be in, but with recycling you always win!," Bethel Elementary.

With the cooperation of Waste Management, the slogan signs have been erected under the recycling rate signs at each convenience center.
