First Meeting: Highlights and Lowlights

Sunday, Mar. 1, 2009

San Jose High School is still energized about getting their Environmental Club started. They have contacted the City of San Jose to get recycling bins for around their campus. The goal is to have 10 recycling bins around the campus for alminum and plastic. There are also getting paper-recycling containers for every room. The club has set up a system where two students will collect from a different hall each day.

The school has announcements over a loud speaker, but they are neither heard or paid attention to. Also, the principle wants a written proposal of how the club is actually going to get the recycling program running. Apparently the school already has recycling picked up by the garbage company but nobody collects is from the classrooms.
