District Green Initiative
Every year, the Spackenkill District follows the ED-1 Records Retention and Disposition Schedule issued by the New York State Archives to facilitate the systematic disposal of unneeded records.This year, the district began a new initiative with Legal Shred for environmentally friendly records destruction, filling 31 bins with an average capacity of 175-200 pounds each, It is estimated that the total weight for the service was 5,500 pounds, about 2.75 tons. After shredding, the company recycles the paper for security purposes and to benefit the environment. Recycling that amount saved about 40 trees and over 7 cubic yards of landfill. The district will continue to find ways to lessen the ecological impact of school operations.
