McKenney Middle School

Oscar the Grouch isn't the only one who has a problem with garbage. Our school is located in Canton, New York. State and county-wide, we have a problem with garbage (also called solid waste). BUT we are recycling our milk cartons, paper straws, and paper napkins in our cafeterias. That's a long story and it took a long time and a lot of effort by a lot of people to make it happen. Can you guess how many cartons are thrown out daily at your school? Do you recycle? We hope so and we hope you'll visit the rest of our website:
