Last Sunday, as part of NewtonServes 2019, a group of students and parents put up recycling signage in most rooms at Bigelow. This is part of a larger effort to improve recycling in Newton Public Schools and we are happy to have started it at Bigelow.
The ultimate goal is to better manage waste in schools, starting with recycling. By using standardized signage, everyone has constant reminders, which minimizes confusion and makes the process of separation more efficient.
