Great news, Hempfield Area High School's recycling program is a hit!!!!! Since launching a school-wide paper recycling drive on October 5th, the HAHS has collected and recycled over 14,000 pounds of paper..... If 14,000 pounds doesnt sound like a lot, check out the benefit on the environment.
14,000 pounds of recycled papers has saved:
*21 cubic yards of landfill space
*14 barrels of oil (588 gallons)
*49,000 gallons of clean water
*28,700 kW hours of electricity – enough energy to power 35 average-sized homes for a 5 month period
