I apologize as this is a duplicate entry for the Dominoe Trash Can from Holy Family as one of the group pictures did not load correctly and arrive with the first entry sent.

 

A local business donated the trash cans when they seen this event so the school could participate and enter.

Taking a stand against trash can be thought of like the domino effect one start and soon an unstoppable series of changes gain momentum and keep the earth clean.

Again sorry but thank you for giving students this opportunity in helping others and the environment.

Our class really enjoys Pokemon, especially Pokemon Go.  It was a full group effort to come up with a theme and how to design the trash can.  Each student took a part and was in charge of thier part from start to finish.  The lid is propped up and painted to look like a Pokemon Ball (with the No MOre Trash logo in the center.  The bottom of the barrel has recycled cardboard painted like a computer screen with keyboard.  The screen has the logo, "Gotta Catch 'Em All, Catch on to Recycling".  Placed around the sides of the trash can are Pokemon Go characters floating and waiting to be found.

100% of our can was made from recycled materials except for the electronics. Our design shows how polluted our rivers and oceans are on one half and the other shows what it should and could look like if we all work together to recycle. The tiny fish were cut out of a used styrofoam container. We also added a sensor that can sense people walking by and activate the LEDs.

Dogwood Tree and the Bumble Bees resulted from a small group of one fifth grade class wanting to help keep their community clean. Originally two ideas - a giant flower with a giant bee, and a tree - we combined the two into our final product, a flowering dogwood with bees exploring it's branches for flowers. Materials used include:

Our slogan, “Fight Like Pirates for a Litter Free Life,” integrates our school's mascot and annual theme (It’s a good day to be a pirate) with the MDC and MoDot No More Trash contest requirements.

Our mascot, the Perryville Pirate, is a strong and positive character that conveys a very important message about eliminating litter while suggesting that viewers commit to leading a litter free life.

For students this means practicing the good habits of throwing trash away and supporting others who join the fight for a clean planet.

I decided on "Let Nature Sing" for my No MOre trash can theme because I love everything related to nature and love to sing! With a litter free environment, I believe nature would be healthy, happy and singing with joy!

I used paints, glitter, cotton balls, butterflies, birds, hot glue, glass gems and even a Persimmon tree from my Aunt Abbys forest! I worked very hard to make a pretty trash can I hope everyone can enjoy.

Oak Brook Elementary in Ballwin, MO held a trash can decorating contest in January 2016.  We talked with the students about the 26 million pounds of waste that gets added to our Missouri landfills every day.  We are hopeful that the contest and the decorative trash can will draw more attention to this growing problem.  Hannah Fitch, 4th grade student, won the contest with her whimsical monster design.  She worked every Wednesday after school for a month with Ellen Havey (art teacher), Joy Berry (gifted teacher) and Christina Beaumont (counselor) to design and create the trash can and slogan
