Blaine Green Team - Volunteer to help recycle and keep Blaine Green
Our goal is to significantly reduce the amount of landfill waste
generated at Blaine. Thanks to years of work on the part of past Blaine
parent Karen Kubota and our current Middle School Science teacher Randy
Self we have a strong program. Joining the team this fall is parent, Ben
Eckhart. Due to our diligence in conserving energy, water and waste, a
Shared Savings award of $1600 has been awarded to Blaine. This will
enable the Green Team to purchase enhancements for our programs.
Lunch time recycling program!
Students volunteer to help other students dispose of waste into the
proper receptacles; landfill, compost and recyclables. Interested in
helping train and/or oversee the student lunch time volunteers? Pick a
Monday, noon-1:00pm to help train for the week! Questions, contact Ben Eckhart at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For class parties and events, remember to follow these guidelines,
grab a green compost slim jim on wheels from the copy room (there are
3, 2 on dollies) on left as you enter, then empty after in compost
dumpster. Everything you need is there. Extra bags and keys for disposal
included. Any questions? Contact parent coordinator Ben Eckhart at email@example.com.
