Nestle donates $37,235 to school

PUSLINCH TWP. - Nestlé Waters Canada has donated $37,235 to Aberfoyle Public School for signs, landscaping and a new recycling program.

“We are grateful that Nestlé Waters Canada supports our school and we are particularly thankful for this latest donation,” said school principal Sue Guest.

“Having the school signage in place is a great boost to our visibility in the village and has also enabled improved communications with our community, in general.”

The donation will also help the school re-landscape its property and establish the first public spaces recycling program of its kind in a Wellington County school.

The public spaces recycling program was implemented at the school just prior to the conclusion of the school year. The school sign was also erected around the same time. The school has also received a plan to re-landscape its property.

 Nestlé Waters Canada has donated $63,485 to Aberfoyle Public School over the last five years, including $26,250 towards the purchase of playground equipment.

The establishment of the public spaces recycling program at Aberfoyle Public School, deploying the methodology developed by the Canadian beverage industry, has seen a considerable improvement in the diversion of recyclable materials at the school in a short period of time.

During this school year the focus will be on educating students about how to properly and effectively recycle.

 “Nestlé Waters Canada is proud to be associated with the local elementary school in its community – Aberfoyle Public School,” said president John Zupo.

“Our industry is leading the way amongst consumer packaged goods companies in Canada when it comes to the life cycle management of our packaging and Aberfoyle Public School is leading the way in Wellington County when it comes to establishing best practices in recycling as well as educating our young people about the value of recycling - and doing it the right way.”
