As part of our Reduce, Reuse Recycle instructional program, we joined the Great American Can Round Up competition in 2012. We have won the state competition for the last three years. We use the instructional materials provided by the program to support our environmental lessons. Since the 2012-2013 school year, the 130 + Crellin School students and their family members have kept 3898 pounds of cans out of the landfill.
Community members join students when we organize "Trash Bashes" throughout the year. Although we are keeping our eyes out for cans we find other trash that is recycle, reuse, or dispose of properly.
Flyers are sent home to remind families that we are collecting cans. The cans collected can be brought to school or taken directly to the Salvage Yard.
