On Tuesday, November 14, Shoreline City Council recognized the recycling efforts of Meridian Park Elementary School as part of its proclamation of America Recycles Day in Shoreline.

Meridian Park Elementary is one example of the success that students and staff can achieve by improving recycling and reducing waste at their school.

Between September 2016 and January 2017, the school increased its recycling rate 10% by collecting recyclable and compostable materials in the cafeteria. 

All grade levels monitored recycling and waste stations during lunch periods, and second-grade students came in early to help kindergarteners with their lunches, in addition to their own. 

Waste reduction and recycling reminders and successes were included in lunch announcements, and teachers posted student assignments on their teacher webpages instead of printing them on paper.

Throughout the month of November, the Council calls upon residents and businesses to celebrate this 20th anniversary of America Recycles Day, and the significant contribution that everyone in our community contributes to conserve resources and protect our environment by reducing waste; recycling and reusing materials; and purchasing items made from recycled materials.

Meridian Park is on the corner of Meridian and N 175th in Shoreline.
