During my recent visit to Hartsville, South Carolina, I experienced a whole new atmosphere. Not only were the people friendlier, their clean way of living was unique as well. I saw a lot more recycling in that small town than I have seen in mine back home.
There was a waste system set up in the school so that each dorm had one trash basket for regular trash and one for recyclable items. The cool thing was that if the trash bin was full and the recycle bin was empty the students would get a warning. My friend – who I was visiting – told it me it was the school’s way of keeping students on their toes to remind them to recycle.
To me, this is a great idea. Everyone keeps saying that college students and high school students are this country’s future, so why not start with us when it comes to saving this country from pollution?
