Long School has been actively recycling for several years but now our Student Recycling Committee is getting some additional support from the City of Dearborn and The Ecology Center. Through the efforts of a collaborative committee, Long School received new classroom recycling boxes and two more recycling bins. We will also be getting weekly pick-up at Long School (no more ‘borrowing’ neighbors curbs). The student committee will be closely monitoring the amount of recycling and ensuring that only recyclable items are placed in the bins. Long School was selected, along with Bryant Middle School, as a pilot for this program which the City and District hope to expand to more schools next year.
