Each FC school has a school-based green 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 has been provided to each school since 2011. Bins are emptied once a month; weekly pick-up is available to schools that want to fund the service.
Paper: Each FC school has a Republic recycling bin. One pickup per month is covered, but if your school would like additional pick ups, it is $25 per pick up. For more information on Republic Services, 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.
