Compost/Recycle/Landfill Bins
Wed May 23, 2018
9:15am-10:15am

Expired!

READ BELOW TO DO AHEAD OF TIME!!Stand at Eco-Cycle station and help move full bags of trash, compost and recycle to appropriate dumpsters. Start 9:15, thus okay to watch the start of the race and then head to the station. This is feedback from 2018: Also, you might consider applying for a Green Star Schools grant next spring for incentives for reusable water bottle use and metal water bottles are harder to use as squirt bottles. You could use the grant to purchase reusable metal water bottles with your school’s logo to give out at these events or use for prizes. Just a suggestion and having a separate water station for bottles is good. Also, encourage participants to reuse their cups instead of throwing them away after one time and grabbing another. Thanks again and have a great day! Michele Melio Green Star Schools® Project Manager
