ABOUT: The 2016-17 Oak Hill Academy Leadership Group is working on creating a new program that aims to make waste reduction, preservation of resources and recycling efforts an even bigger and more intentional part of the Oak Hill Academy campus culture. Over the course of the year, we will be introducing the program one focus at a time. Our first focus is waste reduction, in the form of paper and general recycling efforts that will be extended into the dormitories. Our second focus will be on reducing food waste in the dining hall.
Beginning in the second semester, the Leadership Group will highlight water consumption in the school community, with a goal of reducing wasteful use of disposable plastic. We also plan to set our sights on reducing energy waste.
Creating an orientation program that will serve to instill a culture of sustainability on campus with future students is also one of the group’s objectives.
