recycling characters shaking handsNorth Carolina law supports the participation of schools in recycling programs.  N.C. General Statute 115C-47 requires, "Local boards of eduation shall encourage recycling in school and may develop and implement recycling programs at public school."

School recycling programs are essential to creating community norms for recycling. Setting one up takes planning to build partnerships, establish long-term collection plans and identify key benefits to the individual school or school system. Relying solely on one motivated teacher or staff member to handle the collection of materials does not always lead to a consistent program from one year to the next. However, motivating those in-house allies to help the program run smoothly is an excellent partnership!
