Peggy Denney, iRecycle program administrator, was at one of the displays showing off a ladder game made out of discarded PVC pipe.
She also showed off crafts made by inmates at the Department of Corrections. The decorative sculptures of a Guam Seal with a little crab appeared to be carved out of wood, but were actually made of cardboard and rolled newspapers. "They use newspaper, Elmer's glue, shoe polish and floor wax," Denney said. "I want to help promote it, so we can help them get newspapers and an ample amount of the supplies they need. "I love thinking outside the box," Denney said. She said projects like those featured at the roundup divert garbage from going to the landfill.
Panelists include John Michael Jocson, assistant professor of science, Guam Community College; Peggy Denney, president, Marianas Resource Conservation and Development Council, and president, I Recycle Guam; and Evangeline Lujan, administrator, Guam Coastal Management Program.

Peggy Denney, program administrator of iRecycle, said her biggest concern was making sure that the law did not affect the ability of the iRecycle program to earn money for the school system.
"We (iRecycle) haven't been strong supporters because we felt that it would undermine this program that has such tremendous potential for benefiting the schools," said Denney. That would be great, said Denney. But she wanted to make sure that the benefits of the iRecycle program, such as a coordinated collection process and bins provided to the school system, would still be available to schools, especially if the bottle bill lessened incentives for schools to participate in the program. "If iRecycle stays in effect, if it's possible to take advantage of the 4 cents a can, as well as all the services that iRecycle provides to the school, and sell the aluminum to Anheuser-Busch recycling corporation, then you could make over $60,000 per container," said Denney.
Teacher MayAnne Charfauros got together with Agat Mayor Carol Tayama and Peggy Denny of iRecycle and came up with the idea to have a recycle bin decorating contest.
Tayama and Denny judged the competition, along with parents Frank Muna, Ed Biacan, and Lisa Nangauta.
