To increase the school community knowledge of ways to reduce, recycle and reuse to help the earth.  


What will be done with my students

This is an after school club that meets weekly. The students in the club are responsible for all the recycling at our school. The student use wheel large recycling bins to do the collection. The money would be use to purchase better student friendly containers to use in the recycling of paper, cardboard, plastic and cans. Right now the containers are large and hard to use for most of the students. Many of the bins are starting to crack because they have been used for over 10 years.  


Benefits to my students

Students will be able to continue to recycle paper, cardboard, plastic and cans throughout the school in a more efficient way. The students are very proud to be part of this club and having supplies that are more efficient will help the students continue to recycle in our school community
