Morris Academy has had a Recycling Program since 2002. Our goal is to promote environmental awareness and foster a caring attitude of responsibility for our school community, city and our earth. Our commitment to recycling for a greener future also serves as an important fundraiser.
All recycling funds are matched by MMSB (Multi Materials Stewardship Board). The funds raised have continued to grow over the years due to the tremendous efforts of our students, staff and parents. We now recycle approximately 160,000 containers each year and contribute approximately $16 000 to school fundraising each year.
Please support our school recycling program.
We accept beverage containers (juice, water, pop, liquor). Please remember to remove caps and straws or the containers may not be accepted at the depot. We do not accept milk cartons, cardboard, laundry containers or tin cans.
