A Pair Of Moms Help Take School Recycling To The Next Level

Sycamore parents Elizabeth Bruggeman and Sarah Newman are on a mission to inspire the next generation of environmental champions. To achieve that goal, these moms created and installed waste sorting stations in school cafeterias throughout the Sycamore Community School District.

“We tried to take recycling to the next level,” said Newman, to a local news website.

Because of their efforts, Newman and Bruggeman were picked to join the inaugural class of “Game Changers.” This is a new feature sponsored by The Community Press and Recorder that profiles residents that have made a positive impact to the community.

“This is about teaching the next generation to be good stewards and champions of the environment through waste reduction, composting and recycling,” Bruggeman said.

How they accomplished this is to create a waste sorting station at Symmes Elementary School back in 2013. The program was so successful that is went districtwide the following year. The waste sorting station replaces trash cans in the cafeteria. Now there is a spot where trash is tossed into slots that are labeled for compost, recycling and landfill. There was a bit of a learning curve for the students but once they understood how to sort their trash, it became second nature to them.

This is the kind of inspiring program that gets kids involved with recycling not just at school but at home, too. It would be easy to set up the same kind of sorting station in your kitchen. But you don’t have to stop the recycling there. There are a lot more items around the house that could be recycled if you work with the right partner like Junk King Cincinnati.

Major Kitchen Remodel

A dream kitchen is often created after you’ve lived with the old kitchen for a few years. You know all the things that can make that space more practicable and comfortable. Among the most popular items for a major kitchen remodel are putting in a island, replacing tile or laminate countertops with stone, installing a stainless steel sink and upgrading appliances. There are other finishes for floors, cabinets and windows that can also enhance the value. A major kitchen remodel might also involve taking down a wall to open up the floor plan. Now you’re transforming the entire ground floor and that’s a huge potential return on your investment.

Deck or Patio

A backyard should never be thought of as just a place for the dog to do his business but as an extension of your home’s living space. To that end, you might want to consider adding a deck or refurbishing a concrete patio. The key is shade and comfort. You want to make these areas cozy to longing on a warm spring day. It is important that you seal wood decks to keep them protected from the elements. You might want to look at building out an outdoor kitchen in this space as well. This is also when you should bring in planters for fresh flowers or a small herb garden. Think oasis and you can’t go wrong!
