Chelan Middle/High School: Chelan Middle / High School has just initiated a new school-wide recycling / composting program, starting with the cafeteria. It is a slow process to train students (and staff), but we are optimistic and excited about where we are going. Already seeing a massive decrease in trash! - Nov 15, 2014
Tukes Valley Middle School: attended student summit today - Nov 6, 2014
The Island School: Thanks to everyone's efforts, the Carnival (October 5, 2014) was very GREEN! A single 33-gallon bag held all the trash for the entire Carnival. We recycled ten bins of plastic water bottles, aluminum cans, glass bottles and cardboard. Compostables, including all the pizza boxes, paper plates, paper cups, paper napkins, and food waste, all fit into a single 96-gallon yard waste cart. And the Freecycle Station found new homes for several pairs of cleats, many clothes and a fencing outfit. - Nov 2, 2014
