American High School's Recycling Team is a group of students dedicated to keeping the school clean and green.
The team collects and sorts recyclable materials, redeems bottles and cans for funding used on environmental projects and scholarships and seeks ways to expand and improve its efforts.
The Recycling team volunteers are frequently joined by 9th graders from Ms. Wheaton's Biology class who are able to earn extra credit points for helping the environment.
Students meet near the school's science wing every Friday afternoon to process the reclaimed materials, regularly filling large clear bags full of crushed plastic bottles and aluminum cans.
Students also wash and maintain the recycling bins and signs around campus.
