Joining thousands of private citizens, three elementary schools and a high school, St. Marys City Hall and St. Marys Middle School are launching recycling programs at their respective facilities.

Alex Kearns, Chair of St. Marys EarthKeepers, stated, “The St. Marys EarthKeepers congratulate City Hall and St. Marys Middle School on their recent decision to implement recycling programs. We are thrilled to have been able to assist them in their efforts. From the participation of our City’s leaders to the activities in our schools, our community is demonstrating its commitment to thoughtful environmental stewardship. The experience and knowledge that our students gain from these efforts ‘trickles upward’ to the adults and results in both greater awareness and positive change.”

St. Marys Middle School joins St. Marys Elementary School, Mary Lee Clark Elementary School, Sugarmill Elementary School and Camden County High School in helping to lead the way in educating our youth about environmental responsibility. Teachers and students at the schools have organized “green” groups” to promote recycling and other practices that contribute to our planet’s sustainability.

“With more than 1,200 students and a sizeable staff, St. Marys Middle School’s recycling program is sure to be highly effective,” Kearns said. “The EarthKeepers are most grateful to Advanced Disposal for their ongoing assistance and pro bono services in our schools.” Advanced Disposal is the contractor responsible for garbage collection and curbside recycling in St. Marys, Woodbine, and the County.

With a twice-the-national-average recycling compliance rate and the enthusiastic participation of students and now City Hall, St. Marys is rapidly earning a reputation for both civic involvement and environmental responsibility.
