A recycling plan for third through sixth graders at Macks Creek Elementary is going school wide.
Jerry Palmer with Palmer Feed and Recycling started a campaign at the school to recycle newspaper.
Palmer is using a tractor he bought using funds from Solid Waste Management District T and the MoDNR to stack bundles before they head to Springfield.
The recycler says the school program brought in what would normally take six months and it’s growing.
Third graders led the fourth, fifth, and sixth graders with their contribution to the nearly ten thousand pounds collected.
