Newton Public Schools promotes recycling in its classrooms and school buildings. In May 2019, the School Committee approved a policy on recycling. The City of Newton has also applied for a School Recycling Assistance Grant offered by Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP). NPS and the City are currently investigating the installation of textile recycling receptacles at all school sites. More information will be posted when available.
Our partners in the City of Newton have developed student friendly signage to encourage recycling in our classrooms and buildings. Posters are available at no charge and can be ordered (by NPS teachers/staff) through the Newton North Graphics Communications Center.
