West Tualatin View earns Green School certification

On Earth Day, the West Tualatin View Elementary School (8800 SW Leahy Rd) and its Green Team was awarded a “2007-08 Green School” certificate from the Beaverton School District. This award is for completing the required trash audit, improving recycling percentages and introducing co-mingling of recyclables to the students. They had a short talk about the history of Earth Day and recycling plastic bags and how we might reduce this trash by using reusable bags.

A Plastic Roundup competition had great results.  West TV students collected 205 pounds of plastic grocery and merchandise bags!  That translates into approximately 13,700 bags!  They were stuffed into cars and taken to Far West for recycling.
