Contact: Marissa Perez-Dormitzer, District Recycling Coordinator (508) 979-1493 recycling@newbedford-ma.gov Date: November 18, 2014 For Greater New Bedford Regional Immediate Release Refuse Management District NEW BEDFORD – Elementary students at William Taylor Elementary School in New Bedford will race to collect as many recycled materials as possible to learn about and practice single stream recycling. The group, led by several UMass Dartmouth students, traveled to the Elementary school both October 31st and November 13th. There, they assigned the students a project to promote single stream recycling. The project was to see which class was able to collect the most single stream recyclable materials; empty bottles, cans, paper and cardboard, within the specific time frame. The class would then use their collected material to create posters each with letters forming the phrase “SINGLE STREAM”. “As a team we plan to educate not only the kids of William Taylor Elementary, but the staff as well as to what Single Stream Recycling is. We plan to do so in a fun, interactive manner to get the students involved and have fun while they recycle” said team member Devyn M. Blume. The class that was able to recycle the most material after two weeks was then selected to have a photographer take a picture of them holding up their letters, which would then be posted in the New Bedford Guide as well as The Standard Times. This project, along with several others are part of a course called through the Charlton College of Business to promote recycling within several communities. In total there were roughly seven teams comprised of about five students from the senior-level management course. The job is to increase as well as promote recycling through these projects which included activities such as traveling to schools, hosting events and even completing radio show in effort to educate the several communities that were reached.
