Green Newton’s Schools Connections Group in collaboration with Newton’s Department of Environmental Affairs, needs volunteers to conduct a recycling survey on “waste, recycling and composting practices” in the schools listed above.

Volunteers from other Newton schools have offered to conduct the survey, which involves documenting observations by doing a walk-through of the school. Some questions may require communication with custodial staff, administrative staff, or faculty. We ask that volunteers read through the assessment BEFORE starting it, and please plan for a few hours or so to complete it in the next few weeks if possible.

Here’s the survey: Sustainable Materials Management Survey

The data to be collected will help to better focus city resources on significantly improving the sustainability of our schools. Please contact to let us know if you are interested in volunteering for this project.
