Plastic recycling stopped at FHS

“The club was started as a way to make a difference in regards to the amount of trash that our school was throwing out,” Sidwell said.

Reduce, reuse, recycle; we have been told that since we were little kids. But, recently though, the school has stopped recycling plastics and bottles.

“Plastic recycling was stopped because there wasn’t a budget to pay for the recycling to be picked up,” instructional assistant and recycling club sponsor Warren Sidwell said. “Originally we were paid to gather recycling. When the resale market weakened, they offered to pick up for free. Now we have been told there will be a cost to Fishers to pick up recycling,”

The school deals with PaperRetriever for its recycling needs. PaperRetriever resells the paper and plastic to companies that can reuse and repurpose the materials. As of now, the school will be able to keep up paper recycling.

Recycling Club helps pick up the materials from each classroom. They pick up recycled materials during fourth period Monday through Thursday. Two groups are used to do this – one for the upstairs classrooms and one for the downstairs classrooms. Both groups get about 15 to 16 classrooms a day.

“The club was started as a way to make a difference in regards to the amount of trash that our school was throwing out,” Sidwell said.
