The names are in – pick your favorite for the new recycling mascot.
Vote on the county's Facebook page for your favorite mascot name. Open submissions for Charleston County Environmental Management's mascot naming contest has closed and the top four submissions have been chosen for public voting. The top four names are:
– Randy “Re-New,” the Recycling Guru
– Phil D. Bin
– “Ollie,” the All-In-One
– Philup Cartaway
Voting will be open from April 14-23. The winning name will be announced at the county's Earth Day Festival on Saturday, April 26. The resident who submits the winning name will receive an annual Gold Pass Membership for Charleston County Parks.
“We have received some creative names for our new recycling mascot,” says Charleston County Councilwoman Anna Johnson, who chairs the council's Recycling/Solid Waste Committee. “Having the public choose the winning name is a great way to engage citizens. This mascot was developed to serve as a branding element for the county's All-In-One recycling program and we hope this character will inspire residents to recycle.”
Charleston County's Environmental Management Department will be hosting the 2014 Earth Day Festival on Saturday, April 26. The festival provides hands-on educational opportunities for all ages, and highlights the county's environmental programs. The free event will be held from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. at Riverfront Park on the former Naval Base in North Charleston.
