Laurens Central School Receives Recycling Grant

Laurens Central School Receives Recycling Grant
ALBANY – Laurens Central School was the recipient recently of a “Green Schools Grant” from the
New York State Association for Reduction, Reuse and Recycling (NYSAR3), the professional recyclers’
association for New York State. The grant, for $500, will be used to purchase recycling bins, totes and
dolly to enhance recycling in the school. Other award winners in the Fall Round of grants were Lansing
Central School and City Honors School in Buffalo.
NYSAR3 established a grant program for public and private schools Grades K-12 in 2005 for the
purpose of providing seed, or start-up money for recycling/waste reduction programs in public and
private schools. Since that time, almost 90 NYS schools have benefitted financially from the program, to
say nothing of the environmental benefits achieved by instituting recycling/waste reduction programs in
schools.
NYSAR3, the premiere recycling organization in New York State, provides members with expertise and
education on waste reduction, reuse and recycling issues and practices to improve the environment. The
group advocates for policies and programs that support environmental sustainability in the Empire
State and provides access to a network of individuals and organizations that share ideas about starting
and improving reduction, reuse, and recycling programs, as well as information on education and
funding. More details are available on their website: www.NYSAR3.org.
