BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Buffalo's public school system's recycling efforts are even less ambitious than those of the city.

Most schools aren't even recycling bottles and cans, and the ones that do are only recycling paper and cardboard on a regular basis.

"Most schools are not recycling," said Andy Goldstein, the city's former recycling coordinator said last month on WUFO-AM.

"There are a few schools that have space issues and don't have room for it, but it can be done."

Susan Eager, the district's director of plant operations, said there have been varying degrees of recycling success over the years. Consistency has been a problem, she said.

"If you can't have the consistency, then the program is going to fail," she said.
