Current Project: Recycling Plastic Water bottles to make benches for Paddock Lane School
Beatrice Paddock Lane Elementary School Students will be asked to bring two plastic water/soda bottles to school in October 2019 to be placed in collection boxes. The collected bottles will be recycled and four recycled content 6' plastic Malibu benches, at a cost of $500 each, will be purchased for the school. The recycled benches will be installed on a cement area at the new edition at Paddock Lane School to provide seating for students.
This is great educational project to teach youth the importance of recycling and reuse. In future years, the recycling project will be offered to the other Beatrice Elementary Schools to purchase benches(s) for their students.
