The scavenger hunt's icon.
Recycle Hunt was a scavenger hunt that took place during Earth Day 2010. The hunt included 8 different items that were hidden around the island, and finding all of them rewarded the player with the Recycle Pin, and allowed the player to access the Recycling Plant during the party.
A small recycling box on the upper-right corner of the screen opened a progress window that provided clues about the items' locations.
Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow.
