Willamette High School
Willamette High School is one of 48 schools across the country to receive recognition as a 2014 National Green Ribbon School.
The honor, announced today by the U.S. Department of Education, is for the school’s efforts to improve the health and wellness of its students and staff, reduce environmental impacts, and provide environmental and sustainability education.
Some of the activities which earned WHS the honor includes the more than 2,000 pounds of recycled material every week, use of paper towels that are EPA certified 85 percent post-consumer waste, participation in Eugene’s Love Food Not Waste composting program, an annual community recycle round-up, use of raised garden beds and hydroponic garden systems that serve as skills training for students, a student-led schoolwide recycling program incorporated into instructional program, and much, much more.
Recycling has become part of how we do business at Willamette.
This is your opportunity to clean out the house and garage…for free. Bring your old computers, phones, TVs, electronics, household and other reusable items to Willamette High School for the 5th annual Recycling Round-Up, this Saturday, April 19th from 8:00 to 2:00.
