NY Post: In violation of law, schools aren't recycling

Yesterday, the Post confirmed something that many of us who are concerned about schools' environmental impact have long suspected: few schools recycle, and the city doesn't care that they aren't following local laws or DOE directives. Even at Brooklyn's Academy of Environmental Leadership, recyclables and trash are mixed together and thrown to the curb. The DOE could really be a leader in reducing its environmental footprint, but instead its lack of a recycling program is an embarrassment and evidence in a time of massive decentralization that some functions might be better carried out centrally.

Maybe "the city doesn't care" because the City does not enforce public recycling. Environmental impact is a universal concern for all.
