  • Facilitate the creation of Green Teams in each of the Milton Public Schools to raise awareness and educate students about what happens to their waste and what choices they can make to get to Zero Waste. (not sure if this is the best place for this topic).
  • Reduce waste, litter, and the resulting environmental harms through a coordinated town strategy including regular green up days, public recycling and composting receptacles, and stricter rules on single-use plastics, plastic bags, styrofoam, etc.
