Charleston County Environmental Management is announcing a naming contest for its new recycling mascot costume. The costume is modeled after the recycling cart used in the County’s successful All-In-One program.
“Having a mascot present at outreach and community events enables children and adults alike to connect with our recycling programs and understand the importance of conserving our resources,” explains Charleston County Councilwoman Anna Johnson, who chairs the Council’s Recycling/Solid Waste Committee.
Residents are asked to submit a name via email to . Residents can submit more than one name if they choose. All email submissions will be considered and must be submitted by Friday, April 11, 2014 at 12:00 p.m.
Environmental Management staff will select four names to be narrowed down to one name via a poll on the County’s Facebook page. Citizens can vote for their favorite name. The name with the most votes will determine the winner and the resident who submitted the winning name will receive an annual Gold Pass membership for Charleston County Parks. Charleston County’s recycling mascot will debut at the County’s Annual Earth Day Festival scheduled to be held on Saturday, April 26, 2014.
