Maple RecyclesJoin Maple in Going Green


Maple Avenue was chosen as a pilot school to aid in renewing recycling in our school district and the City of Niagara Falls. We have recently partnered with the City of Niagara Falls Z.O.O.M. Program, Clean Neighborhoods, and Modern Recycling to determine the best way to facilitate recycling in our district as well as support outreach to our community. Maple responded by creating a Green Team of Maple staff to help bring this initiative to life.

The Green Team’s main initiative is to increase our recycling efforts and decrease garbage amounts into our landfills. Our students will be learning about and participating in Single Stream Recycling in our classrooms. By bringing this environmental awareness, our goal is to practice Green Habits in school and at home. Our new partners graciously donated an iPad and a signed Mike Weber Jersey which included 4 Sabres Tickets. These raffle tickets cannot be bought, but earned by any Maple Avenue student. The raffle took place at the Science Fair on March 23rd,

All information for Going Green, ways to earn raffle tickets, partner information and Single Stream Recycling will be taught at Maple as well as posted on this website.

These changes in our trash routine will result in creating less waste in our landfills. This not only will save the city money, but will help make Niagara Falls a more beautiful city to live and raise our children in.
