What I Do to Green My School
Do you have a copy of the Frisco Environmental Services coloring book What I Do To Green My School? Ten Frisco ISD students entered our idea contest. See their pictures, ideas and other fun activities while you learn about ways you can keep your school Clean and Green.
This activity book reminds us that we can recycle plastic bags in Frisco, but they can't go in your blue cart! Bring bags to our Environmental Collection Center (6616 Walnut Street), or bring them to school. Every Frisco school accepts batteries, plastic bags, ink cartridges, cell phones and shoes for recycling or reuse.
