[GreenYes] Re: School Recycling; Batteries
Duval County Schools (Jacksonville, Florida) have developed a school
recycling program.  I have copied this message to Joyce Levy, secretary
to Jack Saye (retired), the School's Recycling Coordinator.

As for batteries, check out www.rbrc.org.  They help collect and
recycle rechargeable batteries in stores and cities around the country. 
(Jacksonville's HHW facility uses their services, as do several store
around town).

Thanks for all the great feedback on William McDonough.  I have
started
reading the articles and had the opportunity to pass information on him
on
to a representative of Pepsi with whom I was communicating about
recycling.

I teach middle school special education and work with students in the
resource room and in their classes.  I work a great deal with reading
and
will try to filter in some of his readings into what we read when we
work on
reading comprehension skills.

Does anyone have or know of a teacher or a school that has a copy of a
recycling plan?  Disgracefully, My school does not have one currently -
or
at least one that isin practice.

Does anyone know if any places or stores still take and recycle
batteries
(A, AA, AAA, etc)?  Radioshak does not at least at the locations I
have
visited.

Finally - and I hope that people do not mind my questions - does anyone
do
indoor composting?  I was told by a friend that did that it would be
best to
use a cedar wood box because it helps kill the odors.  I have no means
of
making one and can't find any cedar boxes of the size needed for
indoor
compost.  I would greatly appreciate your guidance.  THANKS!
