Video: Maryland Students 'Rev Up Recycling'

County officials in Maryland called on high school students to organize a media-savvy promotion for recycling. A total of eight teams of students from six high schools produced video commercials dedicated to recycling.

According to The Capital Hometown Annapolis, the videos didn’t disappoint. Students illustrated recycling in their own terms, using a variety of scenarios including a game show, a love scene and even a rap video. All eight entries will see some airplay on the county government TV channel and online.

Jim Pittman, director of waste services for the county government, tells The Capital that all of the messages in the video were right on target. The winning entry came from Glen Burnie High School, and its tagline read: “Plant a seed of caring,” “Recycle for the future” and “Grow a better community.”


  1. Thanks Amanda for the article on Maryland Students ‘Rev Up Recycling’. I have been in Maryland four times. It is a beautiful state. I like to visit again.
    Re recycling the waste materials, please visit our videos in above website to find how waste materials converted into an efficient environment-friendly and low cost fuel for poor community. If you are interested to show the videos on “Cooking without Gas” produced by the BBC in 2007 in the schools in Maryland, please let me know, I will call my daughter in Virginia to share the videos with you. Her number is 15712254398. If you need more information with slides, videos, please let me know.
