Students in Environmental Science classes at Lincoln High School in Des Moines are working hard to increase their school’s recycling. Once a week, the students collect recycling bins that each class fills and places outside of their classroom.

The Environmental Science students then sort through the bins to ensure that everything is recyclable.

So far, they have collected over 9,700 lbs. of recycling.
