Thanks to the Recycling Extravaganza, the district was able to donate 64 bicycles to a local non-profit for restoration and distribution.

Recycling Extravaganza a great success

Nov. 4, 2011—The Guilderland Central School District's second annual Recycling Extravaganza, held October 29 at Farnsworth Middle School, was an amazing success thanks to the participation of numerous students, staff, parents, and community groups.

Throughout the course of six hours, the district collected:

Almost a full roll-off of paper (that's a 40-foot container!) with a total paper weight of 5960 pounds

One and a half tractor-trailer loads of electronics

Approximately 200 pairs of sneakers to send to Nike to up-cycle

Four roll-off's of metals; 25,460 pounds including tin and low grade metals

In addition, through the event the district donated 64 bikes, three scooters, one snow saucer, one snow sled, and one wagon to a local non-profit for restoration and distribution.

The event generated $1,872.60 for Guilderland Schools and created a great deal of goodwill in the community. Thank you to all who attended!
