Recycling Program

  • 126 Welcome to SCPS Recycling Program. The Division practices single stream recycling with the assistance of our contracted Refuse Service Provider, Waste Management. The Division has been practicing recycling at some level for over twenty years. In 2007 the program was rejuvenated during a major overall of programs and policies and now the program consist of a viable and comprehensive recycling program that reflects the sustainable spirit exhibited throughout the Division's schools and operating sites. Comprehensive recycling occurs at every school and operating site every day and not only includes your standard paper, metals and plastics but also includes oils, rubbers, electronics, used printer/copier cartridges, composting and much more. See the link below to obtain a better understanding of the Division's recycling history and its current program.

    The Division manages its recycling program through direction from a Division wide recycling committee with membership from all schools, key departments and all operating sites. The committee maintains oversight of the program, co-ordinates annual goals and identifies new efforts.
