CLOVIS -- Students and teachers at Ranchvale Elementary School are the top collectors of lunch kits in the Lunch Kit Brigade, a free, national recycling program created by Lunchables Lunch Combinations and TerraCycle. 

By collecting waste from lunch kits of any brand, the school has helped to divert 794 units of lunch kit waste from landfills.

After they sign up to join a recycling Brigade, schools earn points for every unit of waste they collect and send to TerraCycle. 

"Were very proud of the work that students and teachers at Ranchvale Elementary School have done for this Brigade," said TerraCycle CEO Tom Szaky. "We love working with Lunchables to celebrate and reward schools doing such great things for the environment."
