TRASH COSTS CASH
That is the message being presented to the third grade students in the Quincy Public Schools. At each of the eleven elementary schools John Sullivan, Director of Waste and Recycling, for the City of Quincy Department of Public Works, a QSCP partner, has been visiting to educate the students on the importance of recycling along with the department’s recycling robot, Mr. R E Cycle.
The students are informed of what materials are recyclable and how recycling saves the taxpayers of the city of Quincy money by separating recyclable materials from their regular trash.
At the end of each assembly the students are given a fact sheet on recycling and a “mood pencil” inscribed with the phrase, Trash Costs Cash.
