SARAH COBB CONTINUES CONSERVATION EFFORTS WITH EXPIRED INK CARTRIDGE COLLECTION In the summer of 2011, Principal, Mrs. Barbara Watford and some assistants, collected the large amount of classroom materials that had been purchased and hoarded by some classroom teachers of the years. "To save money and stockpile unused classroom materials, each teacher was asked to place these materials in the hall at the end of the school year. We went through Sarah Cobb and sorted these materials and moved them to a supply room that is jointly used by our faculty. That effort saved over $12,000 in school start-up costs," said Mrs. Watford. As the concept of recycling and environmental conservation grows in the United States, Sarah Cobb, for years, has intensified their practice of collection used or expired printer cartridges from their school and others who are aware of the program. "We sent a shipment of these cartridges to a program called "Recycle Rewards" this week. In only days, we have many cartridges in our recycle bin. We encourage readers and other citizens of Sumter County to become more aware of conservation practices. If you have students or other contacts with Sarah Cobb, please send the plastic recycling cartridges to us," said Mrs. Watford. Last week, Sarah Cobb received a check for $50.00 from "Recycle Rewards". In today's economy, every penny counts.
Here, the filling bin is displayed in the reception area of Sarah Cobb by Mrs. Watford, Mrs. Jeanette Mitchell and Mrs. Karen Woodard.
