Holland High cops $2.5 million in recycling competition

Members of the Holland High’s Tourism Action Club collected their prize on Wednesday during the "Falmouth Invasion" lunch-hour concert hosted by the Ministry of Tourism.

Meanwhile, other awardees included second place winners,  Hague Primary and Infant School, William Knibb Memorial High School, which was  placed third; Duncans All-Age fourth and Salt Marsh Primary School fifth  place.

They were all awarded prizes for collecting plastic bottles.

Hundreds of students and other tourism stakeholders converged in Water Square for a sensitization march through the streets of the town dubbed “Falmouth Invasion.”

The march was aimed at encouraging residents and business interests to keep the resort town clean and foster civic pride. Participants later gathered in Falmouth square for the concert.

Minister Bartlett, Mayor of Falmouth, Colin Gager and Custos of Trelawny Paul Muschette led off the march to the drumbeat of a marching band.
