Recycling Awards

 

The Recycling Awards Program was originally created by LWVSC member Jerry Jagrowski in 1997. The goal was to award Brevard County elementary, middle and high schools for their efforts towards recycling within their school.

Mr. Jagrowski ran the program for many years with the assistance of the Brevard County Solid Waste Management Department and Brevard Public Schools.

In 2013, Mr. Jagrowski invited Marcia Booth, then a new member of the LWVSC, to be the new coordinator and carry on with the program. In the same year, Brevard County Solid Waste Management Department announced they would not be able to assist with the program any longer, so Mrs. Booth began to work directly with Laura Kandiko, Brevard Public Schools Facilities.

The requirements changed once Mrs. Booth took over the program, but every year the LWVSC, in collaboration with Brevard Public Schools, invites all schools in Brevard County to participate: tour our landfill, create a project describing that experience, and submit their project to be reviewed and recognized according to posted rubric.


It is our main goal to motivate students to think about ways they and their school can reduce waste and increase our recycling rate instilling in them an appreciation for the environment and the need to conserve our precious natural resources.
