Green Teen Recycling Program

The Problem

The recycling program in my old middle school is not running efficiently. We do not have a bin for every classroom and none of the janitors are taking the bins to the drop off space on a weekly basis. We want to try to get 90% of all paper recycled at our school once we set up a more comprehensive recycling program.

Plan of Action

Receive donated bins from the local school systems Conduct an audit to see how much paper is needlessly wasted each day in the middle school. Distribute bins to classrooms and corral volunteers to dump them off at the drop off site once a week. Start a campaign to persuade kids to use the recycling bins properly.
