The Recycling at Work Pledge


According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), as much as 45 percent of the 250 million tons of municipal waste generated in 2010 was from commercial and institutional locations such as business and government offices, retail establishments, schools and hospitals. Recognizing the power of individuals in the workplace to engage in recycling which results in saving energy, reducing emissions and landfills, conserving natural resources and generating jobs;

We the undersigned pledge to increase recycling of materials generated in the workplace by 10 percent by 2015.

We will achieve our goal by undertaking a series of approaches which will include:
  • Increasing employee awareness of the availability of recyclable services and benefits of recycling in our offices and other facilities;
  • Making recycling more convenient to enable greater participation in recycling at our workplace;
  • Identifying cost-effective opportunities to incorporate consideration of end of life recyclability and increased recycled content into the products we purchase;
  • Reporting on our progress each year through the Recycling at Work online reporting system; and
  • Inviting at least one other organization to take the Pledge.

As an environmental school, recycling is a large part of what we do everyday. Students are reminded to recycle breakfast and lunch items, and have taken a lead role in our Green Team - helping other students with recycling. Our school also composts our leftover food, participates in the Recycle Bowl, and partners with our local university to learn better sustainability practices. Did we mention we grow our own food? We are so thankful to be a school who reduces, reuses, and RECYCLES!
