Friday, the city of Florence donated 100 new recycling bins to Florence High School, because students told them they want to get others on board with recycling.
City employees dropped off the new recycling bins and students helped put them together and pass them out throughout the school. Florence High School student, Aaron Earwood, and his classmates are taking a new course called the service learning class and one of their projects is to get other students to start recycling more.
"When your walking down the hallways you just see people chunk anything in the trash and that's not really helping anyone out here," said Earwood.
The new recycling bins came with a label on the lid and sign at the back explaining what exactly can go into the bins. The city was able to donate the recycling bins by using some grant money given to them by ADEM.
