School District 43 is going Green!
“Food isn’t waste, so put it in its place”
Starting January 2015, School District No.43 (Coquitlam) is joining Municipalities, public and private organizations throughout Metro Vancouver to reduce waste in local landfills.
School District No.43 (Coquitlam) is taking action and enforcing the mandate of recycling all organic waste in all District schools, buildings and locations. Bins are presently being rolled out, and staff and students are preparing for the changes. Important in the process is shifting behavior. To do this, the Board of Education is proud to support our “Organic Recycling Awareness Campaign”. In this campaign we will disseminate information via school newsletter, social media, digital creatives and scheduled “green focused” events. This campaign will focus on informing students, parents, staff and the community about the on-going effort our schools are contributing to this mandate.
Please watch for further information about organic waste recycling in your area. If you would like to volunteer to support your neighbourhood school with their green waste transition, please contact your school administrator.
