Weathersfield Elementary


Weathersfield Elementary received recycling equipment through the CVUSD Recycles program. This includes 15- and 44-gallon containers for common areas, as well as several smaller containers for inside each of the schoolโ€™s classrooms.

The school is recycling paper, bottles, cans and cartons. Students make rounds every Friday to empty the recycling containers in each of the classrooms. The schoolโ€™s custodian takes care of the containers in the common areas of the school.

The school is not currently redeeming cans and bottles for cash but is hoping to start doing this soon. In the mean time, all recyclable materials are placed in a separate dumpster designated specifically for recycling. The Districtโ€™s waste service provider, Waste Management, empties the recycling dumpster free of charge. So, the more Weathersfield recycles, the more money they can save the District on waste disposal fees!

The school also received a storage shed through the CVUSD Recycles program. Once the school starts redeeming cans and bottles, the shed will be used to store the CRV items collected at the school before they are taken to the redemption center.

In addition to these great recycling efforts, Weathersfield also has two composters that they use in their 2nd grade garden.
