Local schools compete to be named “Paper Recycler of the Year”
Does your school have what it takes to be the best?
This year Clinton County schools will compete to determine which building is the best at recycling paper. The Clinton County SWMD has teamed with Abitibi to challenge students, parents, and staff members to recycle all of their paper into the Paper Retriever bins located at their respective schools. For every ton of paper recycled through this program, schools will receive money from Abitibi to use for field trips, assemblies, or anything else they might need.
But here is where the competition gets really interesting…
Each month the paper will be collected from the schools and weighed to determine the average pounds-per-pupil (PPP) recycling rate. The school with the highest PPP recycling rate at the end of each month will receive the “spirit banner” identifying them as the best in Clinton County. And finally, at the end of April, the school with the overall highest PPP recycling rate for the year will be declared “2010-2011 Paper Recycler of the Year”. That school will be publicly recognized and presented with a recycled-content bench and have a tree planted at the school to commemorate this accomplishment.
So what are you waiting for? Get out there, show your school spirit… and RECYCLE THAT PAPER!!!
