To the Editor:
Enjoyed reading “Glass Recycling at High School” (published in the Nov. 4 issue of The Hull Times in the Hull – 50 Years Ago feature). Students created useful art with recycled bottles. They felt that this was a good thing for them and the environment. And the industrial arts teacher, Sylvester Manna, worked with a small group in redesigning bottles into something new. Brilliant!
Graham Waste and Dumpster Depot are the companies that participate in the collaborative that picks up our trash and items for recycling. Residents are charged for the service, which includes recycling every two weeks. But in my neighborhood, only one other family puts out a recycling container.
If kids 50 years ago took action to improve the environment, perhaps it is time to follow their lead. What would it take to get our kids involved and to increase recycling in Hull?
