Rebirth of Recycling
The individuals at Gateway to Learning are actively involved in choosing what programs they participate in as part of their lifelong learning. This past summer, several individuals indicated that they wanted to bring recycling back to the organization.
As a task-orientated person, Brian L., pictured right, loves the recycling program. With blue cans in every room, every day, he and other participants collect items for recycling, sort out any items that don’t belong, and break down packaging to fit within the containers outside.
Beyond the task itself, Brian L. likes the recycling program because “it helps me reach my goals”. And one of our goals is to show the participants how to be active citizens in their community. Being active citizens in our community, means taking care of our environment.
