Mississauga Students Competing in National Contest

A Mississauga school is recycling to win a garden and cash for charity, and students need your help.

St. Jude’s Academy, a private school for junior kindergarten to Grade 12, is in the Meadowvale area on Torquay Mews.

The school is on the national leaderboard to win the top prize of a garden made from 100 per cent recycled material through the third-annual Febreze Frenzy recycling contest.

This year's contest is the biggest in TerraCycle Canada’s history, with $8,650 of charity donations being shared among the top ten winners.

Participants must send in as many units of air and home care waste, such as trigger heads from spray bottles, as possible before May 31.

Two points are awarded for each item sent to TerraCycle.

The contest is part of TerraCycle and Febreze's air and home care recycling program. The free, national initiative allows for any brand of air-freshener cartridge or home-cleaning packaging to be recycled.

Anyone in Canada can sign up to take part.
