P.S. 26 is a designated "Recycling Champion" school - a partnership with GrowNYC and the Department of Sanitation. Out Green Team is a core of nine 4th and 5th graders that work in school sustainability (recycling) and peer education. Each member performs hands-on duties that help us comply with New York City recycling mandates. The Team also engages students and staff in responsible habits and positive action which effectively reduces the amount of trash sent to landfills.
