Recycling Program

Students, staff, and parents of Immaculate Conception School participate yearly in the Multi-Material Stewardship Board’s (MMSB) School Recycling Program called the Green School Routine. This program is open to schools teaching grades K – 12 and encourages recycling within their school, while at the same time educates students, teachers, parents and the community about the benefits of recycling.

How our program works

    Every second Friday is Green Day at Immaculate Conception School.  Every student is encouraged to bring in their beverage containers for recycling.  School wide goals are set for our school to strive to achieve.

     Our program has tremendous parent, student, staff and community support.  Our recycling drop box is located behind our school and we encourage members of the community to continue to drop off their beverage containers for recycling in this box or to drop off their beverage containers to the Green Depot as a donation to Immaculate Conception School.
