Recycling at The Academy

As one of our green efforts, we recycle in the library. In the foyer is our main recycling basket for cans and bottles. We also have a container in the Electronic Classroom. Students in the Afternoon Program work under Dr. Scheintaub to recycle water bottles and to redeem returnables for cash which is donated to Partners in Health. The Academy raises about $1000 each year this way.

Two new books point the way to everyday strategies for recycling and reusing. True Green: 100 Everyday Ways You Can Contribute to a Healthier Planet (333.72 MCK) and Don't Throw It Out: Recycle, Renew, and Reuse to Make Things Last (363.72 BAI.) Both books can be found in the Green Cup Display in the front of reference.
