HMS goes green
Each day during lunch at Harry Hurst Middle School a group of students who call themselves the “Green Team” scurry around campus emptying recycling bins.

The school has partnered with Phoenix Recycling to engage the whole school community in recycling as a part of making our school campus a “green” community.  Daily, members instruct their peers, the faculty and staff as to what should be recycled and what is considered regular waste.

Students have collected approximately 1,698 gallons of paper, plastic, aluminum and cardboard.
