Zero Waste to Landfill

We launched a ZERO-WASTE-TO-LANDFILL initiative in January 2012, with assistance from our local partner, Chef Container. Both the Plasman and Laketown Campuses participate in this program.

At our schools as we strive to:
  1. Increase our recycling programs to maximum efforts.
  2. Encourage our school families to recycle by allowing them to bring recyclable items from home.
  3. Teach students the value of recycling and how diverting waste impacts our local, national and world environments.
The world has changed - so much of what we use every day is recyclable or reusable in some form or another. Therefore, we at Calvary Schools believe this process is part of our mission to educate and produce the future great stewards of the earth.
