FLC Wins State Title in National Recycling Contest PLUS Brings in MOST Poundage in USA!!

Top 4th Grade Recyclers for the Year
Top 4th Grade Recyclers for the Year
Despite having a major hurricane that delayed the school year by almost 2 months, Martha McLeod is pleased to announce that Fulton 4-5 Learning Center was again declared the state-wide winner for Texas in a national recycling contest sponsored by the Can Manufacturer's Institute (CMI) out of Washington DC.  This is the 6th year that the school has won top honors in the state.  Keep in mind that there are over 10,000 school campuses in the state of Texas and our students had an incredibly rough year with all of the rebuilding after the storm.   Winning the state title is therefore quite an honor indeed.

The school also brought in the most total poundage of all participating schools in the United States!  Wow!    However, unlike previous years, the CMI is NOT awarding $1,000 to the top state recyclers nor are they giving out $5,000 to the overall national winner this year (see message below).   

 

 "Hi Martha – We do have results. And, Fulton was certainly the Top Recycler in Texas and was the school that recycled the most amount of cans in the U.S.! Another school recycled more per student but only because they had less students. However, our program wasn't funded as of last fall and we can no longer offer the cash prizes that we could in the past. We were very disappointed when our members decided they could no longer fund The Great American Can Roundup.  So, while I won't be sending a check, what I can offer is to send you a Certificate of Recognition as being the top recycler in the State of Texas. Thanks for all your recycling efforts."  said Dorie Thompson from The Great American Can Roundup, Can Manufacturers Institute

Fulton 4-5 Learning Center recycled an impressive total of 4,449 pounds of aluminum cans or 11 lbs per student, the most of any participating school in Texas.   That equals to 142,368 aluminum cans kept out of our local landfill.    Many thanks goes out to Mr. Can Recycling in Fulton for processing all of these pounds of cans for our school!!!

 

In the 2011 – 2012 school year, won the state title by bringing in 2,843 lbs of aluminum cans.

In the 2012 – 2013 school year, won the state title by bringing in 3,363 lbs of aluminum cans.

In the 2013 – 2014 school year, won the state title by bringing in 5,813 lbs of aluminum cans.

In the 2014 – 2015 school year, won the state title by bringing in 6,910 lbs of aluminum cans.  

In the 2015 – 2016 school year, 2nd place in the state    

In the 2016 – 2017 school year, won the state title back by bringing in 5,767 lbs of aluminum cans.

In the 2017 – 2018 school year, won the state title by bringing in 4,449 lbs of aluminum cans + we brought in the most total pounds for any school in the whole United States!

 

The school's metal recycling program is sponsored by 5th grade science lab instructor Martha McLeod as an extension program for the science department.   All cans are weighed and transported either after school and/or on the weekends on a voluntary basis for McLeod.   Trailers for transporting the cans to the recycling center were provided by Amy and Chad Chapman for the 2016 – 2017 and 2017 – 2018  school years.     Thank you Chapmans!!

 

Mrs. McLeod said, "Even though we did not receive monetary prizes, I am happy we brought in the most total pounds in the whole United States.    That was a goal I wanted to accomplish before my retirement in a few years."
