Thanks to our students and staff for collecting and depositing plastic bags in our bins. We collected over 10 pounds of plastic bags. Continue to deposit plastic bags in our bins to help save our environment.


A GREEN "Thank You" to Kohl's for taking our collection


Kohl's Associates gather plastic from incoming merchandise. Customers are also able to return unwanted plastic bags of any type to our stores. This plastic is sent to our distribution center to be baled. Baled plastic is recycled into pellets or film that is then made into new items.
