Le conseil scolaire de district catholique de l’Est ontarien (CSDCEO) has announced the implementation of a new single-use mask recycling program in its schools and administrative offices.

In connection with the eco-citizenship component of the new Strategic Innovation Plan 2021-2025, and always with the aim of being good eco-citizens, mask drop-off stations have been installed in the schools and administrative offices of the CDSCEO.

As a result, CDSCEO students and staff now have the opportunity to recycle their single-use masks.

“This new single-use mask recycling program will reduce our ecological footprint and stimulate eco-citizenship awareness among students and staff,” said CSDCEO Director of Education Eugenie Congi.  “This is a concrete example of the innovation that exists daily in our French-language Catholic schools.”

“Since the onset of the pandemic, we have worked closely with the Eastern Ontario Health Unit (EOHU) and the Ontario Ministry of Education to ensure the health and well-being of our students, their families, our staff and our entire school community.”

The CDSCEO is the largest network of French-language schools in the five counties of Stormont, Dundas, Glengarry, Prescott and Russell and also the largest employer in the region and thrives on a tradition of excellence!
