    This past Earth Day, our school had a day of fun activities. One thing we did was to collect as much recyclable or clean trash as possible the week before including packaging material, styrofoam trays, lids, bottles, cartons, etc, and in the gym, they built sculptures from them. It was one of their favorite activities. We had thought a contest to bring in the most materials on a given day would help us get enough, but we didn't need to do it. You may want to try something like that. We only have the option to recycle aluminum and cardboard in our community so there were lots of donations. You could do the art project (reusing) or sort and haul the materials yourselves to be recycled as a learning opportunity. That way you don't compare writing and drawing abilities, but really see how much can be recycled instead of tossed.
