City Encourages Residents to Donate Recyclebank Points for Projects
From now until March 15, Recyclebank members can donate points to schools of their choice with just a few clicks.
Rochester Hills schools have been longtime participants in Recyclebank’s Green Schools Program. To date, over $50,000 has been awarded to Rochester Community Schools to implement projects ranging from outdoor learning centers, recycling bins, water refilling stations, and more.
This year, 11 Rochester Hills schools have been selected as finalists for the 2017 Green Schools Program. These schools are competing with others across the United States to receive Recyclebank points to implement their green projects. Schools will received $1 for every 250 points donated.
Rochester Adams High School’s EcoClub has already reached their goal and will use their funding for 36 brand new recycling bins and a recycling station to collect batteries and printer cartridges.
“Thanks to the generosity of our residents, Rochester Hills broke Green Schools records last year by receiving over $25,000 for projects,” states Mayor Bryan K. Barnett. “We’re excited to help spread the word and help our students achieve their goals and make a positive impact on the environment.”
