Cottage Grove school gets `green school' certification

COTTAGE GROVE - Kennedy Alternative High School has become the first school in Cottage Grove to achieve Oregon Green School certification, thanks to its efforts and achievements related to recycling and waste prevention.

The school, one of 22 Green Schools in Lane County, received a $300 incentive grant check at a ceremony April 16. Kennedy Alternative started recycling several years ago with paper, cans and plastics recycling. Recognizing the curriculum value of environmental activities, the school also has begun to compost.

Its efforts include setting up hot compost piles as well as a vermi-composting system for cafeteria food waste; increasing the availability of basic recycling bins in all areas of the school; using more durable dishes in the cafeteria; developing a slide presentation for school-wide training; and developing curriculum for a reused art class.

The Oregon Green Schools Association offers certification to provide technical assistance, awards and recognition to schools that conserve resources.
