Lake County Schools are set to recycle even more this year.

IMG_1245We just ran the numbers and the Lake County schools and students have recycled over 5000 pounds already this year. And the schools are on track to exceed last year’s greenhouse gas emissions reduction – over 85,000 pounds reduced this school year by recycling alone. C4 gives stipends to green teams for any recycling infrastructure they need. So far, since the program began in 2013, we have given over $4,000 to school-recycling infrastructure. The schools have matched this investment and more, creating a recycling bus and weighing all material before it is delivered to the landfill. Great work, all!
