Recycling Program Expands To All Pitt County Schools

The school recycling program, "Feed the Bin", has rolled out to every school in Pitt County. All 36 public schools and three private schools are involved.

"Feed the Bin" started as a pilot project in 2007 through a partnership between ECU, Pitt County solid waste and recycling, the city of Greenville, Waste Industries, and ECVC.

The program has received more than $38,000 in grant money this year to bring all of the remaining county and city schools into the program.

The program gives students the opportunity to learn about recycling through educational presentations.

    Reduce, Recycle, and Reuse...while it sounds great, it still misses the point that we should think about re-enginering things so that they can have many uses instead of just slowing down their way into a landfill. Having all Pit Co schools stop selling unhealthy sugar drinks in metal cans would be better for the kids' health and the environment.
