Mission

– Chesapeake Public Schools is committed to saving the environment by recycling, reducing and reusing refuse materials. The students and staff will educate our school community in the proper procedures and practices of recycling and enable our school division to become good stewards of our environment.

Chesapeake Public Schools’ division-wide recycling program is now in operation.

TFC Now Recycling Cartons


For the first time in many years TFC is adding to the list of materials that can be recycled in our homes and schools. On November 15, 2016, Tidewater Fiber Corporation, in conjunction with Matt Todd of the Carton Council and Rubin Communications, announced that milk and food cartons like the ones you see in the picture below can now be placed in our recycling containers in schools and at your homes. We are excited for this addition to the list of items we are already recycling in Chesapeake Public Schools, and we are sure that this addition will help us do even more with recycling in our schools.
