Hempfield Area High School finally did it!!!! As of January 29th, HAHS will be one of the first schools in PA to implement building wide single stream recycling. That means that students can now recycle plastics, cardboard, glass, paper and metal... all together - NO SEPARATION NEEDED!
After calculating that over 750,000 of garbage is produced in one school year (and sent to local landfills), the Spartan Nation decided to take a stand.
Year 1 Goal: Divert over 500,000 pounds of garbage from landfill to Green Star recycling.
Stay tuned for updates.
Watch the video below on the single stream kickoff.
