Rochester Adams Cafeteria Recycling Containers
Budget: $1557

Help us achieve our goal of providing recycling containers in our cafeteria! Each day, students throw out items in our cafeteria trash cans due to lack of recycling containers. The availability of recycling containers in our cafeteria will make a BIG difference in reducing items going into our community landfill.

Each day, hundreds of students throw out recyclable items in our cafeteria trashcans due to the lack of recycling containers. On our Green School Committee, students raised the idea of providing recycling bins in the cafeteria at each exit by the trashcans, in order that recyclable items can be put in these new bins and not contribute to more trash. These students are willing to run an informational and motivational “green expo” over lunch when the bins are introduced, where they will educate students about the importance of recycling and what items to recycle versus what items have to go in the trash. As parent chair for this committee, I will support and guide their efforts. The administration at our school is 100% behind this effort. This project will benefit our students and school directly by reducing our trash, as well as increasing awareness of the importance of recycling. In addition, their new awareness and behavior will carry over to their life outside and beyond school. In conclusion, the availability of recycling containers in our cafeteria will make a BIG difference in reducing items going into our community landfill.
