Recycling Connections celebrates 40th Anniversary will all-call design contest

On Friday, January 29, Recycling Connections received a Certificate of Commendation from the governor of Wisconsin. It was presented to them by our local Portage County Representative Katrina Shankland. In addition to Rep. Shankland and her staff member Emily Conklin, Recycling Connections staff and board members were present, as well as a few distinguished guests. Following COVID-19 safety guidelines, the event took place via Zoom and all present did a virtual cheers with celebratory 40th anniversary stainless steel cups. The ceremony was recorded and is available on our Youtube channel.

To honor this exciting time Recycling Connections is kicking off their first public event with their Call for Artists with a Sticker Design Contest. The organization has come up with seven environmentally-focused slogans and they are looking for interested artists to submit designs that will be made into 3” round or square stickers.
