On Thursday, approximately 30 Student Council and Gifted Resource students from Barsanti Elementary School took part in “America Recycles Day” with the leadership of Sylvia Crawford.

The students selected an area across the street from their school in the Woodlands (Gardner) housing area that is equipped with a walking trail, and cleaned up unwanted disposed solid waste and recyclables.

The collection amounted to a 60-gallon bag of trash and a small bag of recyclable plastics and aluminum cans. The recyclables were turned into the Fort Campbell Convenience Center for processing – the money generated from the Convenience Center comes back to the installation benefiting the Soldiers, Families and community.

The students along with the help of Department of Public Works Environmental were able to have a hands-on educational experience in determining waste from recyclables; and by doing so were cleaning up the environment. What better way for the younger generation to take part in a day that America considers a Recycling Day with hopes of carrying it on in the daily lives whether at school, where the students participate daily in recycling their plastics and aluminum with collection points located throughout the school, or by participating at home by sharing their knowledge with their parents, neighbors and siblings.

Barsanti Elementary School is also doing their part in recycling with the collection of plastics and aluminum that are generated on the school grounds. Containers are located throughout the school and parental volunteer assists with the proper disposal for recycling.
