The grant given by Encorp allowed the school to purchase garbage bags, gloves, etc. for all participating students, and to organize logistics so that bags filled with litter items found and collected by the students would be sent to the waste management facility, and that the recyclable items found would be sorted and then taken to appropriate places for recycling, such as the local redemption centre for all used beverage containers.
Ms. Annie Boudreau’s grade 6A class and Ms. Julie Roussel’s grade 6C class made it their mission to pick up all the litter items carelessly left on the ground they would find in parts of downtown Tracadie.
Thank you and congratulations to all these young people for helping to make the beautiful Tracadie region even cleaner! You truly are inspiring heroes, and we hope that your efforts will encourage many other people in the community to think more about the importance of keeping beautiful outdoor spaces litter free.
