Timber Point Elementary School’s “Recyclinators,” an eco-class of fifth-graders, are spearheading the school’s efforts to go green. The Recyclinators successfully started a paper-recycling program and installed recycle bins throughout the school. They have also collected and recycled over 24,000 water bottles at Timber Point. To reduce plastic consumption, reusable water bottles were given to Timber Point’s students and faculty in exchange for their pledge to Go Green.
