The American Forest & Paper Association (AF&PA) has presented the Greenhill School,  Addison, Texas, with its 2014 School Recycling Award for Creativity.

Greenhill School’s endeavors include videos featuring kindergarten students that educate the school on what can and cannot be recycled, student-led assemblies with question-and-answer sessions on recycling and handmade posters that are hung around the school buildings with concise information regarding recycling and what is accepted.

“On behalf of AF&PA, I am proud to honor Greenhill School’s recycling efforts with this year’s School Recycling Award for Creativity. Their initiatives deeply engage students, creating a bottom-up approach to paper recycling,” says Bobby Pirtle, supply manager at RockTenn Co.’s Dallas mill, who presented the award.
