Recycling is a big part of saving the environment. Highland does have a recycling system. Mollie Nestor came to Highland 15 years ago and she started the recycling program. Nestor went on to say, “Our students need vocational work. they will mostly use this work for there future jobs. they will learn basic work skills.” she also went on to say “I believe in recycling; I don’t want to see waste.” Nestor believes it is possible to improve the recycling program.

“Kids now will just throw away the garbage without a care in the world. Mr McArthur said “I was born in the 70s, “I think recycling at highland is a good idea. kids don’t know how to recycle at school but I believe if we did a better job at highland then maybe we could really make a difference.”

Mr. Rose agreed that it is a good thing to recycle. He has noticed the recycling at Highland ever since he arrived.  He goes on to say “I like recycling. but I don’t like how now kids don’t know how to recycle like what they throw in the bin and in the trash. he also said, “I use a lot of paper so this would be a good way to give back.” Soon after that, he broke out into a song. he also started to dance slightly. recycling seems to be a good way to reduce garbage and most teachers feel like kids need to do a better job at learning what to throw away.
