Our plan was to clean up trash around our school community (Wabush, NL). Our project aligns with the climate change theme as we hope to remove pollutants from our community and salvage any plastic found in hopes of recycling it. We were inspired to clean up our community after learning about the suffering of local wildlife.
Our plan was to section our town into smaller areas and focus on cleaning one area at a time until we have removed the trash from all over town.
The major tasks include garbage collection and recycling.
The big milestones will be being able to cross off an area on a town map once we have cleaned it.
Reflection & Celebration
We were able to make several trips out to clean up our community. We plan to continue for the rest of the school year. As we were out cleaning, several community members stopped to comment on how happy they were to see a group of students cleaning their community. One local resident even gave us popsicles as a gesture of appreciation! The students had a great time and were very proud of themselves.
