Reynolds' Secondary School Recycling Program
The students at Reynolds are at the forefront of green initiatives in our community. On the fourth Saturday of each month, they will host a drop-off collection for recyclable goods which are not covered in the municipal blue-box program. This is a fund-raising effort and will be charged on a "by donation" basis. Some of the items accepted accepted include styrofoam, holiday light strings, TV sets, vacuums...
