Schools Recycling Efforts Recognised

Seymour Primary in the US was one of ten schools in its state to be recognised for their exemplary recycling efforts. All of the winning schools received $500 to help continue their recycling efforts. "The winners serve as an example for all Tennesseans and have worked extremely hard to preserve and protect the environment through their recycling and sustainability efforts" said Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation Commissioner Jim Fyke.

"Recycling is a topic that is dear to the heart of Seymour Primary School. The steps we are taking to reduce our carbon footprint falls right in line with what we do best", said Moore. "We educate, model, and provide students with opportunities for practice. Our goal is for recycling to be a lifelong practice for our students." The schools were judged on the impact their recycling program has on their community, their new and unique approaches to recycling and waste reduction, their overall environmental efforts, as well as the investments they made to recycling.

Seymour Primary School's program recycles old cell phones, ink cartridges, mixed paper and plastics. In addition, Seymour Primary School holds an annual drive to collect old eyeglasses for the Lions Club and collects used children’s clothing to be recycled. The school allows the community the use of its recycling bins and educates the community on recycling through the school newsletter, posters, contests, assembly programs and guest speakers.
