We are aiming to give residents at college the option to recycling. We are allowing people to do this on an opt-in basis - as in the past the college has had trouble with recycling bin contamination. We will supply groups of people with a bin, and they will take responsibility for emptying it, and splitting up the different recyclables appropriately. Hopefully by making students take responsibility for this themselves, they will encourage others to respect the bins and use them appropriately. Overall, this will hopefully help to reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfill from the college.

My "Green Team" will dig through our lunchroom garbage and evaluate it. We will take multiple samples and determine the estimated amount of waste versus recyclables. The team would then show students, staff, and community the results from their findings and share their estimated calculations for a given year at WMS. The team would also provide ideas to help rectify the lack of recycling presently going on at Washington Middle School and help their school become a greener school in regards to student lunchroom waste.

My project will clean up the community which will help solve the pollution problem in the world. I will do this by organizing a group to help.

Nino de la Caridad Foundation has partnered with the Department of Education with the objective of empowering youth and connecting them with career and college readiness initiatives through college prep courses, capacity building training, and volunteer opportunities. The Community Unity Project will incorporate a number of student volunteers on Friday April 20th 2018 (the Friday before International Earth Day Sunday April 22nd 2018). We will prepare a map which encompasses the entire area of Fordham Heights and some portions of the Little Italy community. Through an additional partnership with the NYC Parks Department, equipment, gloves, bags, and neighborhood support will also be provided for this project. Our goal is to create awareness in our community towards reducing pollution and increasing recycling efforts on behalf of nearby schools, community based organizations, and municipalities.

We will propose our project to teachers at our school. We will educate students about how the project will work. We will put two boxes in each classroom and teacher work areas. One box will be for paper with text only on one side. One box will be for paper that has both sides written on. We will collect the paper once a week. The paper with one blank side will be taken to a local community school for use by students. The paper with text on both sides will be sold to a local recycler. This money will be donated to local charities.

Reduce the amount of garbage in our garbage cans. We have been taking pictures of the amount of waste in all three cans each day at the end of lunch. We hope to see a reduction in amounts. We are still working on this project.

The project will aim to implement the recycling of soft plastics with RedCycle. http://www.redcycle.net.au/ By adding bins specifically for soft plastics to work and school, delivering the waste to RedCycle bins, waste going to landfill will be reduced.
