Bluevale Collegiate has a unique approach to reuniting lost articles with their owners. Most schools have a bin or box method where all of the lost items start to meld into a compost heap of old lunch bags, sweaters and single running shoes. BCI chooses to highlight the items for a short time in a display case, with articles of clothing put on hangers. It allows the public to claim their errant items quickly. The remaining items are then given to a charity for another round of recycling.
