Happy Hollow has a strong recycling program. In 2010, many solutions were already in place; the cafeteria was already separating milk containers (after dumping liquids), cardboard was collected and the BASE students picked up paper. In 2011-2012 these efforts were extended to all waste in the lunchroom and all the classrooms received commingling bins to go next to their blue paper bins. In the Fall of 2012, due to the Town of Wayland switching to commingled recycling, it became possible to recycle even more. More info here.
In the Fall of 2011 the school also saw a lot of gardening activity. A Garden Party drew many volunteers of all ages who installed six garden beds. These beds were distributed among teachers and became a place for vegetables, flowers and garlic. Over the Summer it was maintained by the Pegasus students. More info here.
In Spring 2013 Happy Hollow will begin composting for kitchen food scraps.
