Petition Tag - recycling program
The City of Calgary will start a curbside residential recycling program in 2009. The plan excludes all schools. Most schools are located in residential areas, so the trucks will drive right past the schools but not stop to collect their paper.
The cost of stopping at schools would be minimal if schools are simply added to the route as trucks move through communities to collect recycling.
The children and young adults in our schools are the leaders of tomorrow. Society will be well served if our younger generation learn the importance, the logic and the simplicity of being environmentally friendly at home, at school at work and at play.
We are asking the City of Calgary to help our schools with this by allowing schools to be included in the curbside recycling program.
Request that a recycling program be implemented at 2299 Post St., a.k.a. Med Complex
This is an attempt to voice the concerns of the student body in regards to the recycling program on campus. Although some recycling projects do exist, they are isolated in terms of locations on campus and number of people that have the information and materials to participate in the recycling program.
The students are asking for funding from the University in support of a comprehensive recycling program that would enable every building on campus the opportunity to receive information and materials for the recycling of white paper, cardboard, plastic and glass.
With this funding a position for a campus recycling coordinator would be created, enabling implementation of new practices and stronger support for existing practices.
