"Recycling is Greenstar's core business. Other waste management companies are focused on profiting from their landfill or mill businesses and recycling is a small component of their operations. In comparison, Greenstar is solely dedicated to recycling"...... And I can vouch for these guys, they are the real deal.... And I am proud to say that Hempfield Area High School is about to launch a beautiful partnership with Green Star. HAHS is getting ready to go to single stream recycling. That means 80% of waste produced at Hempfield will be recycled- instead of being planted in some PA landfill. Just amazing. A special thanks to our waste hauler Allied for helping us to make it all happen. Stay tuned.
They did it again.... the HAHS Spartans have shown their true color... GREEN. Since October of 2009, the Green Spartans of Hempfield Area High School have recycled over 40,000 pounds of paper. Thanks to Abitibi for being a great partner. Congrats to Mr.Wuslich, Mr.Bailey, Mr.Harden, Mrs.Dallas and Mr.Cook for coordinating such a successful program.
OK.... so what did our recycling efforts really achieve, you ask? By recycling 40,000 pounds of paper, HAHS helped save:
1. 340 trees
2. 7600 barrels of oil
3. 60 cubic yards of landfill space
4. 140,000 gallons of water
5. 1200 pounds of air pollution
Yeah, that's it!!!!!!!!!!!

The students at Hempfield never fail to impress..... and they continue to press the green envelope. To promote and support Earth Day, the entire high school will be outfitted with Flip the Switch.. Conserve decals on every light switch. What a great way to continue to raise enviro-awareness and smart resource management.
Hold on to your green horses folks... I just stumbled on this amazing new green opportunity for school and businesses alike... Not only can Free Green Can help you grow an incredibly effective recycling program, they can help YOU generate real revenue for your school or biz.... That means more $$green$$ for green projects. The Free Green Can program is an exciting new opportunity that partners waste managers (who are actually interested in recycling), advertisers and schools. Check it out.... We at Hempfield Area High have already began to work with these guys... We will keep you updated on our green progress.
