Las Vegas kicks off colorful marker recycling program

CREATED Dec. 2, 2013

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Dried-up markers will get new life through a recycling program kicking off today in Las Vegas.

Students from the city's Rainbow Company Youth Theater will join Mayor Carolyn Goodman in a kick-off event Monday morning.

The young actors are unveiling artistic drop-boxes that will be placed at City Hall and other locations as part of Crayola's national ColorCycle program.

Old markers will be sent to Crayola's energy conservation site, where they will be converted into usable fuel.

Goodman says the program fits in with the city's sustainability initiatives by keeping the art supplies out of landfills.
