The K-Kids are responsible for the recycling program at Eastside. Club members go to each homeroom daily to collect recyclables. They collect a 55 gallon container full of paper, plastic, magazines, cardboard and aluminum cans each day. This keeps a lot of waste out of our local landfill.

Did you know it takes 500 years for an aluminum can to decompose?
This is where your trash goes after you put it in the dumpster. A lot of this "trash" could be recycled!
