    To provide for the timely and efficient disposal of solid waste generated from all WS/FC Schools and Support Facilities. To maintain all dumpsters (repair or replace as needed) to conform with Health Department regulations.

    Cardboard/Paper Recycling

    • Each school should have an 8-cubic-yard dumpster for cardboard and paper and plastic/aluminum containers.
      • All cardboard should be flattened before it is placed in the dumpster.
      • All paper from the green classroom bins should be deposited in the dumpster.
    • Each school should have a 22-gallon green/blue bin in every classroom for paper recycling.
      • Additional bins should be placed in areas where a lot of waste paper is generated, such as computer labs, workrooms, etc.
    • Schools are responsible for emptying the green bins into the dumpster as often as necessary.
    • Once or twice per week, depending on the amount of paper and cardboard generated at each school, the dumpster will be emptied by WMI. 

    Beverage Container Recycling

    • 20- and/or 32-gallon beverage container recycling bins for use inside the schools will also be provided depending on need.
      • Drum liners should be used for the 20- and 32-gallon beverage container recycling bins in order to minimize the amount of cleaning required.
      • Each school is responsible for supplying drum liners. 
        • Drum Liners should not be placed in the recycling dumpster. 
    • As of October 2013, all beverage containers, (plastic/aluminum) and #10 tin cans (child nutrition) can be placed directly in the dumpster along with paper and cardboard. 
      • The 96 gallon (rolling) containers are no longer used and can be cleaned and re-purposed for other needs at each school.
    • Weekly collection service: for dumpster, to include cardboard, paper, plastic, and aluminum beverage containers

    Additional resources will be provided for new schools, new classrooms, renovations or other expansions. Fifty bins for the system per year will also be provided to replace damaged bins. Recycling bins that have been misplaced or used for other purposes by schools and are no longer available for recycling will not be replaced. Schools should contact Yuseff Williams by email (ydwilliams@wsfcs.k12.nc.us), or Valerie Bolton (vjbolton@wsfcs.k12.nc.us), with questions about recycling.

    Each school should have a designated recycling coordinator appointed by the principal or assistant principal. This person should be the primary point of contact at the school and knowledgeable about the operation of the recycling program. Principals also should be knowledgeable about the recycling program. If your recycling dumpster is not emptied on the designated day, please contact Valerie Bolton @ (336) 748-4045. Please call the same day in order to insure prompt service.
