The Clean School Program has distributed three wire trash bins to 15 schools on Majuro earlier this month. The Clean School Program is leaded by RMI EPA Education and Awareness Division and supported by Public School System, Majuro Atoll Waste Company, MALGov and Japan International Cooperation Agency. The aim of this project is to reduce waste.

All schools which join this project establish a “3R committee” to manage their project. Committee members consist of the principal, vice principal, head teacher, teachers, students, PTA, community members and others. So far 15 of 23 schools around Majuro have submitted their action plan. The other eight are developing their action plans to join the program.
