State or Local Support for Recycle Clubs in School
By Luke A. Dossett

I think that there should be more state/local support for recycle clubs in schools.  In the last couple of years schools like Ketchikan Houghtling Elementary  have started things called recycling clubs. A recycling club is a group of students that are concerned about the environment. These students do things such as recycling cans, bottles, unused papers, and plant various plants around the outside of the school. 

I think this support is very important because it boosts the economy, natural resources and reuses wasted materials. 

I would like to see state or local agencies support the recycle clubs by having the landfill provide recyclable containers and picking up recyclable materials for free. I would also like to see the school board purchase equipment for these clubs as well as recognizing and rewarding those who participate in these clubs. And finally I would like to see any other agencies help in any way they see fit.

I believe this is a good idea because one; It helps the environment.  Two; It creates less waste. Three; It creates cleaner schools.  And four; It uses less recourses to create new products.

And that’s why I think we need state/local support for recycling clubs in school.
