Article Excerpt:

Long tables have been added to the Washougal High School commons during lunch periods with brightly colored signage and inset buckets to sort meal waste. Students walk along the tables dropping food waste, recyclable items, and garbage into their proper containers, taking an active part in the sustainability efforts of their school.  

The recycle sorting tables, provided in partnership with Waste Connections and Clark County Green Schools, was the first step in WHS achieving Bronze Level certification in the EarthGen program. EarthGen provides a framework for K-12 school communities to take long term action and earn recognition for their commitment to make a healthier, more sustainable campus.
