Meghan Theriault from the Town of Goffstown Department of Public Works was on site providing help with going through a days worth of trash to help students identify contents that should belong in recycling. More trash was brought in to accommodate the afternoon session. Theriault states the Town of Goffstown does generate a profit from recycling, however recycling has been dropping within the community in recent years.
In an effort to improve recycling, starting with children could benefit from the knowledge they have learned today and share with family members says, Theriault.
Suzanne Pryszka, Maple Avenue Elementary School Principal in coordinating efforts going through a days worth of trash worked with the Northeast Resource Recovery Association to help students understand what can be recycled. "We are helping them get their hands dirty" said Pryszka as students placed trash in proper single stream recycling bins.
