Our Green Report
The ETHS Central Kitchen has a large recycling dumpster next to the trash dumpster. For every 1 bin of trash, the central kitchen collects approximately 2-3 containers of recyclable items/day.

Items recycled in the main kitchen include:
• Cafeteria promotions for the 07-08 school year have focused on increasing recycling efforts.
o “Drink It Then Sink It” – Dairy promotion which encouraged students to recycle plastic 8oz or 12oz milks within the cafeteria. This promotion included numerous give-aways, a celebrity autograph signing as well as national and local media coverage.
o “Refresh & Recycle” – Bottled Water and recycling promotion which will be held in all 5 cafeterias (students and staff) April 21 – May 2nd. We will be selling Nestle bottled water for $0.50 ($1.00 regularly) and stronglyencouraging students to recycle by emphasizing existing blue recycling bins in addition to adding a new Nestle bottled water recycling bin in a prominent place in each cafeteria.
