Each FC school has a school-based recycling program. Because of the generosity of Partners in Education, such as Keep Forsyth County Beautiful, schools have internal classroom recycling bins and clear stream cafeteria bins.
One single-stream, recycling dumpster per school was included in the waste bid for 2011-12. Bins will be emptied once a month; weekly pick-up is available to schools that want to fund the service.
Paper: Each FC school has a SP recycling bin. For more information on SP Recylcing Corp., please click here.
Aluminum: A number of FC schools have FREE aluminum recycling containers with pick-up service from Old Atlanta Recycling, but the company is unable to expand it to additional schools at this time. FCS cafeteria staff recycles their kitchen cans and is going to continue to operate this program.
Plastic and cardboard: Schools may recycle these items for FREE at one of the county’s recycling centers or at Old Atlanta Recycling.
