"start an organics program for the 10"
Start an Organics Program for the 10/11 School Year Here is an exciting opportunity for your school to ‘go green’ next year. As you may know, this year over 20 Minneapolis schools began recycling their lunchroom waste and restroom paper towels. Thanks to a grant from Hennepin County, we have the ability to add ten schools to this program for the 10-11 school year. We hope you will consider participating. Organics recycling has wonderful environmental benefits, saves the district money, and provides students with a hands-on opportunity to participate in environmental stewardship. With the assistance of the grant, MPS will cover all the start up costs for the program (bins, bags, signage) and pay for the weekly hauling. Participating schools must designate a coordinator for the program and invest time in training kids and adults in the building to participate. Check the Organics Coordinator Handbook, linked to the organics webpage, to see step-by-step instructions for implementing a successful Organics program. If you think your school may be interested in the program, please contact email@example.com for further information. Sincerely, Mary Blitzer MPS’ goes green’ intern Mary.firstname.lastname@example.org
