Stetser Elementary and Main Street Elementary Green Team students took the lead in starting a successful recycling collection pilot project at their respective schools during Spring 2015. This is the first phase of the Chester Zero Waste School Project, a partnership of the City of Chester, Chester Upland School District, and the Institute for Local Self-Reliance (ILSR), working to:

  • Support the City of Chester in its effort to increase recycling and strive for zero waste;
  • Educate students, parents, and the community about the importance of zero waste and how to effectively recycle and compost;
  • Create a model school organics recovery/zero waste program.
