On Tuesday, November 15, students from BCHS Lab School visited all district elementary schools during lunch to share presentations highlighting recycling and composting programs across the district.  Thousands of pounds of recyclable material and compostable food waste are diverted from the waste stream each year thanks to the effort of Bethlehem students and staff. 

America Recycles Day is a nationally-recognized day dedicated to promoting and celebrating recycling in the United States. Each year, on or around Nov. 15, thousands of communities across the country participate by promoting environmental citizenship and taking action to increase and improve recycling in America.

The district team with the Town of Bethlehem and the Delmar Farmers Market to hold the town’s Third Annual America Recycles Day Collection Event on Saturday, Nov. 19, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Bethlehem Central Middle School.

Shredding is limited to Town of Bethlehem residents and BCSD taxpayers with ID; with a maximum of 3 medium-sized boxes per household.
