Sound Off: Recycling dumpsters
<b> How much income does the Lawrence school district receive for the recycling Dumpsters that are on school property? </b>
Lawrence school district finance director Kathy Johnson said the schools provide recycling containers as part of their educational program, school recycling efforts and as a community service. After the recycling companies cover their costs, the schools receive a quarterly commission of excess revenue. During the 2011-12 school year, total revenue from Deffenbaugh Industries was $1,855 across district schools. GT Enterprise Inc. revenue was $105.
Johnson said the district does not track any revenues paid to elementary parent organizations that sponsor recycling containers.
