Many of students have noticed, CCJH now has a recycling box in each classroom, where students can recycle their bottles and cans.
This is the first year Cactus Canyon has been recycling cans and bottles. Before they only recycled paper.
“This will affect CCJH by making our community a more clean environment,” said Desirae Davis.
This recycling project is to help Davis’ life skills program. The life skills program is to help students learn various life skills and one of those is taking care of the environment.
“They will be learning out to take care of the environment and how it will help our earth,” said Davis.
Some doubted students would recycle and continue to throw their trash on the floor, but students have been recycling and taking care of the environment.
“I believe (that) if there are recycle bins around school, students will recycle,” said eighth grade student Madison Greathouse.
Some have wondered why the recycle bins are only in the classrooms and not in the courtyard or in the mall area. Students often have water with lunch and aren’t as likely to recycle the bottle if they have to hold it until they are in a classroom. Davis plans on putting the bins in the mall area and the courtyard.
“Eventually I will,” said Davis.
