Recycling Dos and Don’ts

By Myra Wood, Olivia Cobbs, Avery Hughes, and Catie Flanagan

Do you recycle? More importantly, do you recycle here at Whetstone?

We asked the students and faculty at Whetstone if they recycle and most people said yes. But, the recycling program at the school is almost nonexistent.

According to junior Myra Wood, that is going to change. “The Whetstone environmental club is teaming up with the custodians, the staff, and all of you to kickstart the program.”

In the past, the items in the recycling bin were thrown into the trash. This resulted in teachers taking home what was in their recycling bins to have it recycled.

You may be wondering, where are the recycling bins? There is a blue bin located in every classroom for all of your recyclables.

Since it has been a while since the recycling program here are some reminders of what you can and can’t recycle.

You can recycle:

  • Paper
  • Plastic Bottles
  • Cardboard

You can’t recycle:

  • Chip Bags
  • Styrofoam
  • Food
  • Plastic Bags

So next time you have an empty plastic water bottle, make sure to put it in one of the blue recycling bins in the classroom.
