A pie chart has been shared with your teachers. When we use recycling bins, we put the right things inside 84% of the time, 15% is garbage in our recycling bins, mostly plastic cutlery which is garbage. When it comes to our garbage bins, only 40% is actually garbage. We need to stop putting food, napkins and containers, especially yogurt containers, into the garbage. Special mention goes to the following classes which, when checked last week, had all their waste sorted perfectly, even garbage! Mr. Sammons, Mrs. Baumgarten, Mrs. Elton, Mr. Brooks, and Mrs. Wojcik. Let's all try avoid using the garbage can and start using the right bins more often. </span></li></ul><ul><li><span style="font-family:"arial",sans-serif;">1 out of every 10 people in our school brought in a Waste Free lunch on Wednesday and we have new Eco Warrior Champions!
