3Rs Art Logo

The City of Tampa’s Department of Solid Waste and Environmental Program Management needs your help in selecting the 2017 3Rs’ Art Contest Winner.  The 12th annual 3Rs’ Art Contest is designed to engage the City of Tampa’s youth in recycling while conveying a recycling message.  The first place winning art design for each grade level, along with the artist’s first name and school will be displayed on a City of Tampa recycling truck for one year.

Over 100 students representing every grade level from 5 local schools and 4 after school programs participated in the contest.  Students learn from our Recycling staff the benefits of recycling and recycling trends, such as recycling contamination and what can and cannot be recycled.  The contest, another educational outreach effort of the Department, focuses on the importance of recycling right

Contest votes will be accepted from Feb 9 through March 9, 2018.  

For additional questions or concerns, please call the City of Tampa’s Recycling Team at (813) 348-1027
