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.
Fifth-grade students and their teachers enjoyed an in-school field trip to learn about reducing, reusing, recycling composting and how recycling is sorted at their local MRF (Material Recovery Facility). They also learned how run-off pollution impacts their local watershed. Guest speakers included Janice Allen, Jane Hiller, and Chanda Cooper.
