PARSIPPANY — The Recycling is Cool (RIC) Club is going strong at Knollwood School, as it has been for the past 20 years! The fourth grade members, under the direction of Mrs. Dolsky and Ms. Metzger, collect, weigh, and empty the classroom recycling bins weekly. Recently, the members enjoyed a presentation given by Ms. Liz Sweedy, Senior Recycling Specialist for the Morris County Municipal Utilities Authority, and Mr. Chad Kreitz, Recycling Coordinator for the Township of Parsippany Troy-Hills.
Our guest speakers shared a power point explaining what happens to our recycled papers once it is collected from Knollwood School. The students engaged in a question and answer session, viewed recyclable and non-recyclable items, and were impressed by a “money dress” which symbolized the money saved by the town when we all participate in recycling our garbage.
