Talkin’ Trash 2020-2021 - Myrtle Beach, SC

Despite the obstacles this year presented, the Horry County 4th Graders did an incredible job recycling for Horry County Solid Waste Authority’s Talkin’ Trash competition. The three schools who recycled the most each month won a Talkin’ Trash plaque, $300 to Office Max for their school, some Talkin’ Trash swag AND a live presentation with sponsor mascots including RJ from Rockin’ Jump, a magician, and the Talkin’ Trash crew!

They were also recognized on WBTW News 13 live the following night on their local newscast. The three schools who recycled the most overall throughout the year won the Grand Prize- a trip to Rockin’ Jump and a free meal at Mellow Mushroom.

It was another successful year and will only grow next year with plans to return to a full year competition.

This couldn’t have happened without all of the sponsors. Something as simple as having the mascots present for outside school visits makes the kids’ day. They absolutely loved it! Below are the winning schools each month and the Grand Finale winners.
