OSWEGO, NY – Novelis and the Oswego City School District have teamed up once again this year in a major aluminum can recycling campaign.
Fitzhugh Park Elementary School Principal Donna Simmons said, “We kicked off our Novelis Can Match Funds in conjunction as our students saw a presentation about reducing, reusing and recycling. The message was clear that the Novelis goal is to ‘Make the world lighter, brighter and better. Students listened attentively and had many questions for the Novelis representatives.”
Simmons stressed that “The students had a great time and all neared about how we can help shrink our carbon footprint.”
Novelis representative Ryan Tamayo was on hand to announce this year’s alumni can recycling campaign on behalf of the Novelis “Cans for Community Committee.”
The committee is set to award its first can recycling awards based on last years’ can recycling campaigns.
It was noted that a newly reorganized and reinvigorated Novelis “Cans for Community Committee” looks to build in last year’s idea that funds collected from school and community can recycling campaigns will be distributed back to the Oswego County schools.
Money collected from each school can collection effort will be given back to that school with a matching contribution from the Novelis “Cans for Community Committee” for a mutually agree upon school purpose.
