I was taking a stroll and I happened to pass by a school’s dumpsters. I couldn’t help but take a look at all the opportunity that was being passed on. Don’t you think schools should be recycling, composting and donating as opposed to trashing? I mean, the students are the future and all… setting an example and being a steward in the community shouldn’t be an option.
Who knows, maybe I’m really ahead of myself… maybe not a single person at the school has ever thought about waste segregation. Maybe no one at this Philadelphia school lives in Philadelphia and recognizes that they participate in single stream recycling at home already.
Are the schools near you recycling? Composting? Donating excess supplies and lost and found never found? Are they getting the students involved?
I wonder what the waste hauler thought…maybe they never proposed providing the service anyway. Either way, this isn’t about blame as much as it’s about looking through trash and asking questions…so take my lead and go do it.
