Earlier in the year, we communicated with the school district to implement recycling bins in classrooms of teachers at Santa Monica High School. Our patience and perseverance resulted in success! For the Thanksgiving holiday we distributed thirty recycling bins. We cultivated a clear sign displaying items to recycle and items to trash for better waste management in our school community. Our signs help clear up the difference between recyclables and trash. Students who aren’t aware of the correct way to recycle can result in damaged bins and delayed recycling. We would like to thank Ms. Virginia Hyatt and Crown Disposal for providing these bins and helping us make Santa Monica High School a more eco-friendly campus by giving the teachers their requested bins. Now, students at Santa Monica High School can gain a better understanding of the importance of recycling and the correct way to approach it.
