Ross Valley Charter School took part in the annual Keep California Beautiful K-12 Schools Recycling Challenge Competition to challenge ourselves to see just how well our in-house recycling systems work in our first year of operations. The Keep California Beautiful organization runs the Recycling Challenge to help educate communities about the importance of proper recycling of resources.
Before opening our doors in August 2017, we reached out to Izzy Parnell-Wolfe, coordinator for the Marin Sanitary Service’s Zero Waste school program. She gave us hands-on training, efficient sorting bins, and signage to help get us off to a strong start.
The Recycling Challenge took place in February, and we just found out that we won placements in the Paper Recycling category of the Statewide competition!
First Place – Recycled Paper (per capita) Second Place – Recycled Paper (overall)
Ross Valley Charter School is thrilled to receive these awards through the diligence of our teachers and staff. We strive to model active stewardship of our resources for our students and community, and will continue to build on this long term goal.
