Weirich Waste and Stingel Elementary in Ontario have teamed up to help promote recycling with grade school students.

Once a month the school hosts Recycle Day, where students can bring plastic, aluminum, paper, steel and even old electronic products to be salvaged in a collaborative effort to help benefit Mother Earth.

Kevin Weirich, owner of Weirich Waste says that "Recycling and using is going to be an important part of these kids' future, so we just decided to help out the schools this year."

Weirich added that Recycle Days are held once a month, usually on the second or third Thursday to give students multiple opportunities to recycle.

Stingel second grade teacher Lynda Ditty helps Weirich with Recycle Days and conveyed how excited the students were for April's event. With Earth month celebrated during April, Ditty says there were extra incentives for the kids.

Whichever class brought in the most recycled goods would get a chance to compete in a game of jail ball against the faculty, according to Ditty. She added that the school tries to do a recycling project every year and that the students really seem to enjoy it.

For additional information on how to recycle Weirich Waste can be contacted at 419-528-9429.
