Silver Creek's Green Team helps Adams 12 win national award

Adams 12 Five Star School District was nationally recognized for their hard efforts recycling and composting across our schools! This award represents the culmination of a lot of peoples' time and effort on a daily basis and we could not have diverted over 400 tons of waste in 2020 (that's almost 33 full sized school buses worth of waste!) to recycling and composting programs without all of you.

Congratulations on receiving the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s National 2020 WasteWise School and School District Partner of the Year award! Attached is your congratulatory letter, certificate and social media digital award.

The press release announcing the awards is located here.

Your success story is posted on the EPA’s website here.

Thank you,

U.S. EPA WasteWise Team
