Fourth-grade students at Farmington Elementary School teamed up to sort trash and recycling, measuring the impacts of the recycling program. Farmington Schools takes an assertive approach to energy and waste reduction to control operation costs to maximize resources available for the educational program.
The district is an active partner with Dakota County in an Enhanced Recycling Program which is supported by a $30,000 grant. In fact, County staff worked side-by-side with Anne Anderson who coordinates district energy savings and composting programs and Lena Larson from City of Farmington Public Utilities at this event. Students from the school and Principal Ben Januschka played a vital role in the effort.
