Community Recycling Continues Strong in February

It was a beautiful Saturday Valentine's morning when the volunteers showed up. Flanked by an exuberant lot of Girls Scouts from Melawati who happily stomped on cans and sorted paper, and supported by four high school students, the adult volunteers were highly encouraged by the level of volunteerism and stewardship at ISKL. To top it off, members of TrEES were there asking members of our recycling community to make a pledge to do something to help the environment. Overall it was a fun-filled and positive day! The numbers too, were equally as encouraging, as the Community Recycling program continues where it left off in January:

  • Newspaper: 209 kg
  • Mixed Paper: 213.5 kg
  • Cardboard: 223 kg
  • Aluminum: 24 kg
  • Tin/Metal: 60 kg
  • Tetra Pak: 30 kg
  • Plastic: 90 kg
  • TOTAL: 854.5 kg

Thank you to everyone for helping out! We look forward to meeting new recycling families (and seeing the old friends) next month on March 14th. See you there!
