Did you know there are ways you can protect our environment and help sustainability efforts in our schools? The BC Green Team is a community leader when it comes to environmental education and protection. There are several important ways community members can help support the Green Team:

CLYNK Redeemable Bottle Program

Just how easy is it? It’s just three steps and you’re done.

1. GRAB IT

Pick up a large, green CLYNK recyclables bag(s) at any of the district’s seven schools. The bag has a pre-approved BC Green Team barcode sticker on the front.

2. BAG IT

Fill your green CLYNK bag with redeemable containers (limit 20 lbs.)  and tie it tight.

3. DROP IT

Bring it to your local Hannaford Supermarket, scan the barcode sticker and toss it in the bin.  All proceeds benefit the sustainability programs of the Green Team!

Blue Box Textile Recycling

There is a Blue Box located in the large parking lot at Bethlehem Central Middle School. All textiles on the list below can simply be placed in the Blue Box at BCMS. All proceeds from the collection of textiles benefit the sustainability programs of the Green Team!

Plastic Bags and Plastic Packaging

All schools in the district now have plastic bag and plastic film recycling containers. Staff and students are encouraged to recycle the many types of plastics that until now have going right into the landfills. All of the acceptable materials can be collected at home and dropped off to our local Hannaford. Students can also bring these recyclables into school and deposit them in the plastic bag receptacle at school.
