The Little Community of Skatin that Could
The Head of the Lakes school, twenty four students in total, and 80 km's down the Lillooet Lake forest service road is trying their best to reduce waste. The community recently built a recycle, waste depot and closed their landfill. All they need now is for the little depot to open. People at the school collect cardboard and paper and bring it to Mt. Currie while they await the arrival of their new facility and hopefully soon they will be able to really tackle waste reduction with proper sorting stations and bins. I recently went to the school to give a waste reduction workshop and the students were very keen and aware of the great benefit waste reduction has on the environment. They all received reusable grocery bags to give to mom and dad to bring for their grocery shopping, because eve a grocery bag can make a big difference in the landfill. The smallest little town with its action can make a big difference. Thanks to the Head of the Lakes School for inviting the SLRD Waste Reduction Educator to your school!
