Recently, through a coordinated effort of Grand Targhee Resort, Teton Valley Community Recycling (TVCR), and the high school administration, two large outdoor recycling stations found a new home at the Teton High School. Brigid Sinram, Environmental Programs Manager for Grand Targhee, reached out to donate the bins to the community. Teton High School principal, Samuel Zogg, expressed a desire to have public recycling bins available for home games and other school events.
The bins were transported via trailer by TVCR volunteer, Don Sharaf, of the American Avalanche Institute and unloaded by a group of students during their PE class. Bins were installed at the stadium bleachers and at the front entrance of the high school just in time for the first home Girls’ Basketball game.
TVCR was happy to broker this exchange and plans to continue assisting local businesses and residents find new homes for items they no longer need thus diverting them from the landfill through the “Close the Loop” campaign. If you have usable items you would like help re-purposing, contact tetonrecycling@gmail.
While Teton High teachers and students do an excellent job recycling paper, TVCR and RAD Curbside hope to help facilitate additional recycling efforts by donating bins and securing grants to purchase new custodial carts to allow easy collection of recyclable material. Thank you, Grand Targhee for your donation to the high school!
