In The Columbus School staff are not being conscious on recycling and because of this the maintenance recycling guys are angry and disappointed.

Most of the trash that goes to the dump is not in the way it supposed to be for example finding bottles in the grey trash cans. This makes Fabian Gomez and Jhon Duque, maintenance trash teams of the school, very angry because they have more work and less thinks to recycle.

“Students are not separating things in the garbage cans and we need to do it here and make it more work.” Duque said.

Students are not respecting the trash cans in schools and do not even take the time to see what trash goes in what trash cans. This is making the trash cans useless because they are there to help the environment but the only thing that students are making it is a everything trash can said Gomez and Duque.

“Careless, negligence, they do not want to do it,” Gomez said.

The trash cans at the TCS are very visible and well organized think the recycling people. They do not understand why they do not want to help the world if the trash cans are very easy to understand.

“The school has the garbage cans , which are the gray green and blue there are the colors in which one should put the corresponding trash for each color,” Duque said.

Some of the students just do not see this as a problem, even some of them said that who cares. They are not seeing how Jhon and Fabian need to work extra time or touch things they should not touch like toilet paper because of their fault.

“Sometimes we do not see the trash cans and because of laziness we throw it to the floor,” Antonia Pelaez, 8th grade student, said.

They have thought of solutions for this problem because its making them be sad for the environment. Even Though this has been a problem for a long time, there is still any type of advertisement or class. The only year that there is a class on how to recycle is in K5 and maintenance said that this is not working for them.

“We need to bring the students one time the bimester and make them a training so they can help us and the environment,” Duque, said.

The recycling people are very angry because for them finding a toilet paper in the blue trash can is not good and disgusting. They think that staff is not caring to much about them and about our planet.

“ They should think in the environment, is not for us because we are equally working here, but they should put there hand in the heart and think of the planet and help it.” Duque, said.
