The Green School Program, a partnership between the City of Plano and Plano ISD, teaches environmental stewardship with a focus on proper recycling. It rewards schools that promote sustainability practices among students, staff, and the community.
Congratulations to these 2022-2023 Green School Certified schools:
Special recognition to Mathews, McCall, Murphy, Rice, and Vines for receiving cash awards for their outstanding efforts, including special recycling collections, social media campaigns, school gardens, and more. These awards will support their environmental education initiatives next year.
Schools can join the program at any time, but early enrollment is recommended to instill recycling habits from the start of the fall semester. If your student attends a Plano ISD school, encourage school administrators and environmental club advisers to enroll now.
We appreciate the students, parents, and staff for contributing to sustainable Plano ISD campuses!

School starts in two weeks, but many students are coming on campus for activities now . . . which means PTSA and Booster Club parents will also begin their volunteer duties. Be waste aware at West! Do your part to serve as role models and to be considerate to our hard-working custodians by managing trash and recycling correctly.
- EMPTY and clean #1, #2, #5 plastic (caps on bottles)
- EMPTY aluminuDon’tm cans
- EMPTY glass bottles & jars (no lids)
- Clean paper larger than a large index card
- Flattened cardboard boxes
And only place your recyclables in blue recycling bins with clear or no liners when at school.
- Aluminum foil products
- Black plastic
- Disposable service ware: plates, plastic utensils & straws, coffee cups, napkins
- Cartons / juice boxes
Empty and dry plastic film – plastic bags, overwrap on cases of beverages, bread bags, resealable bags, bubble wrap, etc. – can be recycled at school! Look for the Trex collection box in the cafeteria near Lost & Found.
Custodians are NOT allowed to dig through trash and recycling so it is up to everyone on campus to do their part to recycle right!
