We facetimed with Ms.Remuses class and interviewed them with a few questions about how they are recycling and not recycling. To our surprise they only recycled milk cartons,juice cartons and salad bowls. We asked them how we could help. They said that they needed help with knowing what to recycle and what not to recycle. This was a big task but we knew that we could help them out a lot. Another concern they had was if they could recycle there styrofoam trays at lunch because they think that they take up to much room in the trash cans. This was a great question that we plan to investigate further!
After our facetime we came up with some new questions for Ms.Selle (The Enviormental Club teacher.) We asked her what motivated our school to start a enviormental club? She said that there four dumpsters that were always full of trash but they did not know that some of that trash was actually recyclables. To help that problem they decided to make a recycling club. In this club they collect the recyclables and seperate the trash from the recyclables. Another very important thing that they do is educate students on helping the enviorment. We also learned that the recyclables go to Sonocco then they buy it from the city of Rock Hill. Our school has lots of progress with recycling and helping the enviorment. Ms.Selle had the idea of putting flyers in mailboxes in the neighborhood beside the school and having a collection day for newspapers. We think this is a great idea!!
