NYC public schools DO NOT RECYCLE!!!

It's true. Not even paper. Someone once told me it's because the janitors' contract protects them against having to dispose of different types of garbage. I guess recycling is collected on a different day or something. It's really unbelievable especially since we should be preparing our students to be conscientious global citizens. This leads me to think that perhaps all city offices and institutions are also negligent on recycling.

Supposedly as of this year our school is supposed to be recycling. The AP said we will get fined if we don't. There has been a little talk of it but I don't think it's really being done.
