Did you know that Newton schools do not have enough recycling bins and most of them do not have accurate signs listing what materials are recyclable?  We need volunteers from every school to fix this problem now!  Please join our efforts to ensure schools have recycling bins and signs so that the recycling is not thrown away or contaminated with trash.  Contact Joana Canedo, Co-chair of Green Newton School Connections at joanacanedo@gmail.com in order to coordinate a school-wide effort.
