Montgomery County Student Environmental Activists to 
Present Report About State of Recycling in Montgomery 
County Public Schools 

Provisions for waste reduction and recycling nonexistent 
in many area schools

ROCKVILLE, MD --- On Monday, August 27, 2001, 
outside the Montgomery County Public Schools' (MCPS) 
Carver Education Services Center, the Montgomery 
County Student Environmental Activists (MCSEA) will 
present its new report entitled A CLEAR PAPER TRAIL: 
The Failure of Montgomery County Public Schools' 
Waste Reduction and Environmental Education 
Programs, to County Council President Blair Ewing.  The 
report, which reveals the sorry state of environmental 
education in MCPS, focuses on the lack of significant 
recycling and waste reduction programs within the school 
system.  It is hoped that this report will persuade the 
school administration to fully implement environmental 
education and waste reduction programs.  Members of 
MCSEA will perform an original percussion arrangement 
on recycling bins.

Speaking at this event will be MCSEA Recycling Co-
Coordinators Yochanan Zakai and Erica Morgan, both 
MCPS students, as well as Montgomery County Council 
President Blair Ewing (invited).
