Limestone Learning Foundation

Students Riley & Deyanna participated in a waste-free lunch challenge.Recycling signs and systems are available to help increase recycling within the Limestone school system. Schools currently recycle plastic, metal, cardboard, paper and various food packaging such as juice boxes and milk cartons.

In 2012, the Board also completed an organic waste collection pilot at Lancaster Drive Public School. Through a partnership with the City of Kingston, students collected the school’s organic waste using the existing residential green bin program. Because of the success of the pilot, all schools within the City of Kingston area able to participate in green bin collection year-round.

In an effort to reduce the use of single-use water bottles, the Board has installed at least one water bottle filling station at most every school in the district. Students and staff at schools are encouraged to bring their own reusable water bottles to school.

The Limestone District School Board is situated on traditional territories of the Anishinaabe & Haudenosaunee.
