SWA 4R Scavenger Hunt: The Adventure Continues ...

Your favorite recycling pirates are at it again, encouraging you to recycle right! Gather your crew and join Captain Blue Bin and First Mate Yellow Bin for another scavenger hunt adventure to discover how to REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE and RETHINK your waste. This family-friendly event will have buccaneers completing missions on the SWA Greenway Trails, at home and throughout the county at special Ports of Call.

Participating crews will use the free GooseChase app on their mobile devices any time between Oct. 1 and Nov. 12 to complete missions and earn points. Prizes will be awarded to the top three crews and all crews will have the opportunity to win valuable loot.

Hosted by the Solid Waste Authority of Palm Beach County and Grassy Waters Preserve, the SWA 4R Scavenger Hunt event concludes on Nov. 12 at the SWA Celebrates America Recycles Day event. Participants will have the opportunity to complete site-specific missions during the event as they conclude their quest for the treasure.

America Recycles Day, a program of Keep America Beautiful, is a nationally-recognized day dedicated to promoting and celebrating recycling in the United States. Every year on or around Nov. 15 (America Recycles Day), event organizers educate neighbors, friends and colleagues through thousands of events nationwide.
