(a)  Each public school, under the guidance of its LEA, is encouraged to adopt a recycling program for the school that is appropriate for the recycling options available in its community.

The program may include a partnership with a parent-teacher organization, service organization or other nonprofit group, to provide additional opportunities for instruction about recycling and recycling processes and to provide opportunities for community service by students.

(b)  Each LEA is encouraged to set an example for the students and schools within its jurisdiction by adopting a recycling program for LEA administrative offices that is appropriate for the recycling options in its community.

(c)  The department of education shall provide links on its web site to appropriate Internet recycling resources for the purpose of providing schools and LEAs with information on recycling programs.
