2013 Recycling Award Winner: Bishop Watterson High School
Location – Columbus, OH
Amount of paper and paper-based packaging recovered in 2012 – 18.36 tons
School population – 900
Amount collected per student – 33.8 pounds
The paper recycling program at Bishop Watterson is
administered on a volunteer basis by an environmental
science teacher with the assistance of student council
students and advisors, the maintenance staff and the
administrative staff. All student council members are
engaged in the collection of recyclables from their
homerooms and volunteer to help encourage and educate
fellow students with their recycling efforts in the cafeteria. In
addition to paper recycling bins in the classrooms, art rooms,
technology department, library and offices, the school
encourages the recovery of the kraft lunch bags used daily by
approximately 500 students. Nearly 87,500 such bags are
recycled annually as a result.
