To give a sampling of what this program is keeping out of area landfills, here is what Ed Smith Elementary has managed to recycle since August of last year:
- 4.2 tons of paper
- 35 pounds of plastics
- 1,637 pounds of cardboard
This seems like a great program. If you are interested in starting this in your school district, go to the GGI website and find out how to get started.
