The Environmental Affairs Committee is excited to share that Central, along with other D39 schools, will be participating in the 2021-2022 Trex Challenge! The Green Team will help us kick off the challenge on November 15, America’s Recycling Day. Central will have collection bins located in the front lobby for plastic and film recycling. We will weigh the amount of plastic we’ve collected and then record and monitor our progress versus Highcrest, Harper, Romona and McKenzie as well as other national schools in our category. Please see the flyer below for a list of what can be recycled.
First place national winners in our category receive a Trex bench for the school. We’re excited for the opportunity to give our students the experience of how even small changes can have a big impact on our environment. Note: Plastic MUST be clean, dry and free of any food residue,. The Trex Challenge will run from November 15, 2021 to April 15, 2022. If you have any questions, please feel free to email Bill Springer at firstname.lastname@example.org or check out the Green Team’s website for more information.
