Go Green Initiative

Go Green initiative logo
  • The Go Green Initiative is a partnership between Cumberland County Schools and the regional nonprofit Sustainable Sandhills, creating resilient environmental, economic, and social resources for current and future generations. Together, using our mutual resources, we are bringing sustainability to our educational and Cumberland County community.  


    The responsibility for becoming a more sustainable school system is not with one person or one department but with all individuals who are a part of our system.  We have all been part of the problem now we can all be part of the solution. Join Us.

  • Cumberland County Schools' New Recycling Service 

    Cumberland County Schools contracted with GFL Environmental Services for recycling at our schools.  GFL will offer commingled recycling services which will increase the amount and variety of materials recycled.

    Schools will switch to commingled recycling beginning the 2020-21 school year.  Commingled recycling allows for more recycling of schools' solid waste.
