It’s been 41 years since then college student, Gary Anderson, designed the first and still widely used recycling logo, three arrows signaling “recyclable,” “made with recycled material,” or “recycle here.”
Anderson won $2,500 from the now defunct Container Corporation of America, which sponsored the contest. Anderson saw his logo for the first time on recycling bins in Amsterdam in the late 1970s.
