FCPS supports recycling! As citizens of the earth and stewards of our environment, we recognize that recycling has many benefits to our community. Our recycling program serves several purposes:
FCPS currently has two primary recycling efforts:
The program to recycle paper, cardboard, glass, plastic bottles, and metal is a school-based effort in which all staff and students are required to participate. The recycling of fluorescent lamps is a program that can only be enacted by the custodial staff and trained staff members in the Office of Procurement Services. The School Board regulation requiring all facilities to recycle is Regulation 8541.
Paper recycling in 2007 prevented an estimated 3,144 tons of recyclable materials from entering the waste stream. This waste avoidance saved FCPS an estimated $173,958 in disposal fees.
