GLEN ROCK, N.J. -- Recycling will get an overhaul at Glen Rock High School thanks to a grant from Sustainable Jersey for Schools.
Sustainable Jersey announced Wednesday that 34 New Jersey schools were selected to receive a Sustainable Jersey for Schools small grant funded by the PSEG Foundation.
Ian Crawford from the Glen Rock High School applied for the $2 grant to reorganize and revamp the recycling program with new bins, better sustainability education and more efficient organization.
Sustainable Jersey awarded four $10,000 grants and 30 $2,000 grants to fund a variety of projects including food composting, outdoor classrooms, sustainability education, rainwater collection, recycling and more.
“The grants create an opportunity for teachers, administrators and their respective communities to shape the future of their students and schools for years to come,” said Donna Drewes, who co-directs Sustainable Jersey with Randall Solomon.
The PSEG Foundation has contributed over $1 million in funding to the Sustainable Jersey Small Grants Program.
“Our long standing partnership with Sustainable Jersey has helped to empower schools to develop projects that provide students with the opportunity to learn more about sustainability, protecting the environment and STEM education,” said Ellen Lambert, president of the PSEG Foundation.
