On April 30th The Anderson School was presented with the Golden Apple Award for 2012 as a citywide and borough winner of the TrashMasters! Reduce and Reuse Challenge, Elementary Level. This award recognizes our work to compost cafeteria waste and recycle at the school. A panel of judges representing the NYC Department of Sanitation, Bureau of Waste Prevention, Reuse and Recycling (DSNY-BWPRR) made the selection. Glen Nison, Outreach Specialist at the Department of Sanitation, presented the award to students representing our team of Trash Troopers. Attendees included parents involved in the initiative, Student Council leadership, Anderson administration and staff, and our district superintendent. Click on the collage above to enlarge. Visit the PTA website's Green Initiatives page for more information (updated soon).
Our school's participation in the recycling program helps our students increase their awareness about how their own actions can help make our city more sustainable. With the support of our Green Team parents, we are paving the way for our students to show they care about reducing the waste in our school, community, city and beyond. We hope that our students will learn lifelong lessons about stewardship as they reduce, reuse, and recycle.
Thank you to all of our supporters and volunteers!
