Job Training students at Irmo High School have planted nine blueberry bushes with the help of Green Steps mentor, Linda Byars. The fruit will be used in the Stinger Deli where they are learning from teacher, Joyce Moran, to prepare delicious foods to serve at school events.
Students collect and sort recycling at White Knoll High School. Green Step’s teacher, David Cann, then delivers the materials to Lexington County’s Edmund Landfill where the material will be transferred to Sonoco Recycling’s Material Recovery Facility to be baled and sent to factories.
