‘Recycle at School’ Program Launches in Western Newfoundland

On Friday Premier Furey, Minister of Environment and Climate Change Bernard Davis and Chair of the MMSB Derm Flynn were at Elwood Regional High School in Deer Lake to announce the launch of ‘Recycle at School’ in the western region of the province.

Through the program, 45 schools will receive colour-coded recycling bins and educational resources to help students and staff properly sort paper, mixed containers and refundable beverage containers.

The program has also been adopted by Immaculate Heart of Mary, a private school in Corner Brook.

The Recycle at School program was first piloted in 2014 in select schools in the Eastern Waste Management Service Region.
