Montgomery CountyMontgomery County, TN – On Saturday, November 13th, more than 300 people came by Lowes Home Improvement in St. Bethlehem to recognize America Recycles Day. Bi-County Solid Waste Management sponsored this event, the first of this magnitude in Clarksville.

Students from the Sango Elementary Recycle Team “tested” the knowledge of their visitors by engaging them  in games while testing their recycling knowledge. For example, most people did not know that it takes 500,000 trees to produce one week’s worth of Sunday’s papers in the United States or that 150,000 bottles are consumed in the U.S. each hour.

Sango Elementary Teacher and Recycle Team Sponsor Tonya Campbell look on as members of the recycle team quiz the Maynard Family on their recycle knowledge.
