The Captain Samuel Brown School Recycling Programs

All of our recycling programs are run by the Brown School student club, the Environmental Eagles, a grade 4-5 organization. Through the club’s efforts, the younger students learn about reducing, reusing, repairing, and repurposing as an alternative to throwing items away.
