Brighton Students Going Green

As reported by Dan Goldman, Brighton Pittsford Post, Brighton High School’s recycling club has taken on the responsibility of creating and managing the school’s recycling program. The program has spread to all the Brighton School schools. Doug Ackert, the district’s director of buildings and grounds, said that the district installed a total of 20 designated recycling bins throughout its five buildings. He said the goal is to have a club from each of the buildings follow the model created by the high school club. Otherwise, the plan is to bag everything and ship it over to the high school.

In other green endeavors, the Twelve Corners Middle School is starting a new student Green Club, which will have as its first goal the running of a school Sneaker Drive. The sneakers will have new lives as sports flooring, thanks to Nike’s Sneaker Recycling Program.

Council Rock Elementary has hosted a very successful sneaker drive and the French Road Elementary will follow with its own, beginning in April.
