New Recycling and Organics Program

Jefferson Community School is now sorting organic and recyclable waste with the support of LHENA and Hennepin County. We will be collecting recyclable and compostable waste in the cafeteria, hallways, and in some classrooms! This opportunity not only helps to reduce the harmful environmental impact of waste sent to landfills, it also saves money.  Most importantly, it provides students the opportunity to learn about organic and non-organic matter and the recycling process. If you are interested in helping out or would like to learn more, please contact the main office and mention the organics/recycling program!

 

Snowy Street
