The Spanish Club has reached a goal set for the year, recycling a total of 546,000 total pounds of material by the end of the 2011-2012 school year and since the beginning of the program in 2006. Even though we didn't make it by Earth Day, a final push at the end of the year took us way over the goal. For a school of 650 students and a community of 1,100, it's a big accomplishment, even though it may only represent 5% of the waste stream in our district.
The Purdy Recycling Project is a community service program of the Purdy High School Spanish Club in Purdy, Missouri. Our fully-industrial facility is staffed and run by students; we go "beyond collection" to process and sell materials to the recycling industry, taking money out of the trash to provide economic benefit to our community. We are the only school-based, industrial recycling program in the nation, and we expect to surpass 500,000 pounds of material saved from landfills by Earth Day 2012.
