Kids and Recycling Video
The 3rd grade classes at Westchester are responsible for dumping all of the recycle bins in the school every week. We want to make sure all of the students and teachers understand why we recycle, how we recycle, and what happens to the items we recycle after they leave our school. We watched this video to help us understand the recycling process.
