Roosevelt High School, Milliken, Colorado
Kayla, Mattea and Aubrey noticed a problem at their high school – there were not enough recycling bins at the school which resulted in the students and staff contributing over 48,000 pounds of trash per year into the landfill. Their solution was to add 7 more recycling bins throughout the high traffic areas of the school. The materials from the new recycling bins are being collected by Waste Management. The company already has a recycling contract with the school, so it did not increase the overall expenditure for the district.
