In September, the New Orleans Saints and Progressive Waste Solutions Ltd. announced a recycling contest for schools in the New Orleans area spanning from Sept. 25 to Dec. 18. Lagniappe Academy, Metairie Academy and Airline Park Academy were announced as the top winners of the contest.
All three schools will receive a Saints Junior Training Camp session this spring.
Twenty-eight participating schools collected recyclable items including newspapers, magazines, cardboard, plastics, aluminum items and steel cans. Progressive Waste Solutions Ltd. provided receptacles for the schools and students were able to track the results on NewOrleansSaints.com.
