Green Team News

Green Team News

This year our West TV Green Team has focused on learning through impactful experiences out in our community. Last Monday morning, 28 January, Green Team members and their parents toured Recology Metro Central located in NW Portland.Students saw firsthand enormous piles of yard and garden waste that will ultimately become super rich compost, how garbage is sorted (and recycled when possible), the compressing and transport of items bound for landfills in eastern Washington, how chemists accept and handle hazardous materials delivered for safe disposal, and much more.

One of the highlights was undoubtedly learning from a professional Falconer how hawks and falcons are bred and used to deter gulls and crows from landfills. Our group was shadowed by a photographer from Metro who wanted to write an article on who Metro is and how they serve our community.

The article that is full of photos can be viewed using this link: little photo essay
