A New Recycle Program

By Brigid K.
Illinois, Age 10

In Sterling,Illinois, a local girl decided to bring a big,cardboard box to school for kids to put c-f grade papers in. She would take them to self-help, a local recycling unit. After her example, the fourth grade teacher,Mrs.Liston, arranged for the whole school to have recycling! A big bus will come around and pick up the stuff and recycle it.
Hopefully,after Mary's example,everyone will persuade their teachers/principals to recycle at their schools,too!
