Recycling Guidelines

Classroom Bins

Students from the Eco Club empty bins on a regular basis. The city picks up the recycling on Friday mornings. The purple bins are full by the end of the week, so...

  • Please do not overfill the bins.
  • Please break down boxes.

The bins CAN be used for bottles and cans, with a few guidelines...

  • They must be emptied every day to avoid pests. 
  • Monitor the bin to make sure that it only contains recyclables. Make sure your students understand the purpose of the bin.
  • Keep the bin clean and dry. Rinse bottles and cans whenever possible.

Hallway and Office Bins

  • Please use hallway and office bins for PAPER ONLY.
  • PLEASE break down boxes.
  • If you notice that a bin in the hall or office is full, please feel free to have a student empty it, or empty it yourself.
