Penticton students cash in on cans

A total of 34,280 recyclable beverage containers were collected at Penticton's two secondary schools worth a total of $1,769.40

Penticton high school students gulped their way through 34,000 beverages last year and earned a pile of cash for their efforts.

A total of 34,280 recyclable beverage containers were collected at Penticton Secondary and Princess Margaret Secondary worth a total of $1,769.40, according to a press release from Encorp Pacific (Canada).

The non-profit industry group supplies all resources for the program in schools across B.C. Since 2000, Encorp claims it’s helped this province’s schools recycle 40 million containers worth $2.4 million.

Schools can also win cash prizes for collecting the most containers among facilities their size. Penticton’s school didn’t make the grade.
