No matter what you have heard a certain Muppet sing, it is easy being green, and profitable, too.
According to Abitibi Bowater, Frost Elementary is the top recycling school in Lamar CISD, with a recycling program that collected more than 76 tons during the last 12 months.
Foster High School came in second with 52 tons, with Briscoe Junior High next at 40 tons.
The green and yellow bins, found on most LCISD campuses, collected more than 624 tons of newspaper, magazines, catalogs, school and office paper and mail.
Besides helping the environment, schools earn money for the paper that is collected. Frost received $1,234 for their recycling effort, which went towards field trips, technology and other projects.
Green and yellow Abitibi recycling bins can be found in the parking lot of any Lamar CISD school. Residents can support their neighborhood school, while helping save the planet, just by driving by and dropping off their used paper.
