Once the items have been collected at the school, volunteers from the non-profit Benevolence Center will collect the recyclable products.
“This is a great project in which our students can learn the value of creating a healthy, sustainable environment. We appreciate the Benevolence Center partnering with us on this project,” stated Dr. Adam B. Clemons, principal of Piedmont High School.
“The Student Government Association of Piedmont High School is excited to be partnering with the Piedmont Benevolence Center to implement this recycling program. By recycling at school and in our community, students, teachers, staff, administration, and community members can learn the importance of protecting our environment. At PHS, we plan to start small and let the program grow. We will begin by collecting paper, plastic, and aluminum cans from our students for recycling,” stated SGA President Dylan Akin.
“The Piedmont Benevolence Center is thrilled to partner with the Piedmont High School SGA to expand our recycling program. We use our recycling initiative as revenue for our programs as well as offering a local recycling drop off site to the community,” stated Heather Lamey, Piedmont Benevolence Center executive director.
