Collaborative Efforts Make School Furniture Fair a Success
The collaborative efforts of Plainville Community Schools and the town’s Recycling and Solid Waste Commission proved successful at a school furniture fair held recently at Linden Street School. Members of the school district’s Facilities Department together with the Recycling and Solid Waste Commission organized the event in an effort to recycle furniture and other items deemed unusable from the original Linden Street School building.
“The furniture fair was a “Win-Win” for all those involved,” stated Steve Busel, Plainville Community Schools’ Facilities Director. We avoided the costs associated with disposing of these items, and through the recycling event, a number of individuals and organizations were able to pick up items that they could use.”
One beneficiary is the Cross Cultural Academy Arts and Technology School, a newly formed regional charter school located in Hartford. Dr. Augustine Cofrancesco, Executive Director, found a number of items for the academy. “My thanks to Plainville Community Schools for these recycled items that will surely benefit the academy. I look forward to our continued partnership in the greater Hartford community of learning,” noted Dr. Cofrancesco.
“I am pleased with the success of the furniture fair and applaud the collaborative efforts of the Recycling and Solid Waste Commission and the Facilities Department in orchestrating this event,” commented Dr. Kathleen Binkowski, Superintendent of Schools.
