Crayon Initiative

The SOS team is starting a crayon recycling drive for broken crayons. Each year over 75,000 pounds of broken crayons are thrown into landfills. Crayons are not biodegradable and become a waxy sludge in our landfills for centuries.

Crayon collection boxes have been placed around the school. Once the boxes are full, these crayons will be sent to The Crayon Initiative. These crayons will be melted, recycled, and given away to hospitals for children. For more information contact the SOS team (lwolford@wcpss.net) or check out the website http://thecrayoninitiative.org.

Drop off boxes are located 5th Grade Hallway, Main Office, Office Breezeway, Art Room, NRE Cafeteria, and Media Center.Thank you for supporting our efforts to recycle crayons!
