Representatives from the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control visited Clayton Intermediate School students during lunches to lead fun and informative games about recycling with the help of the school's Recycling Club.
Representatives from the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) visited Clayton Intermediate School students during lunches Dec. 19 to share the importance of recycling with the help of CIS Recycling Club members.
The school was awarded a grant through its partnership with DNREC to increase recycling. This partnership was one of the reasons CIS was recognized as a Superstars in Education winner for the school's "War on Waste" recycling program.
In one of the events Dec. 19, Recycling Club members participated in a relay race called “Bin It to Win It” to sort items into trash or recyclables.
After the games, DNREC representatives explained which items should be recycled and gave valuable information to students, including the booklet, "How to Recycle, A Guide to Recycling in Delaware."
Students and teachers said the program was a great way to promote recycling and they are grateful to DNREC for the experience.
