BCHS Green Team Visits Landfill

Members of Barren County High School’s Green Team visited the Glasgow Regional Landfill recently. Buck Houchens and Chris Blythe spoke with students about the process that goes into the disposal of our waste and the benefits of recycling. “Standing at the edge of the huge mound of waste really shows how important recycling is for the future”, commented Calvin Penn a senior at BCHS. Accompanying student to the landfill was CSM Phillip Gearlds who is one of the Green Team sponsors this year. “Land field space is very limited within our community. We need to recycle and use our space wisely”, says CSM Gearlds. Green Team members will be working on projects this school year that encourages reducing, reusing, and recycling as a means to protect our environment and “Give Earth a Hand”.
