"The first step was to make posters and go around to all the classrooms and see if they would participate in recycling," said Emily Ray. "We got 100 percent partici- pation, made recycling bins for every classroom and started Collecting in November." BUT the effort is not just about collecting recyciable materials, and according to Palmer Marlowe, "a mathe- matics team had to be chosen to graph all the data, a tech- nology team was selected to do interviews and make the videos, and a scientific team was picked to do the culmi- nating project which is plant- with keeping notes and doc- umenting the project. We also had to make sure and incor- porate the Georgia Performance Standards (GPS), including writing, math, art, and science...this is not a 'wasting time proj- ect'." Kason Partridge said the class collects paper, plastic, aluminum cans, Styrofoam, and magazines. We've already taken up 150 pounds of recyclable paper." Bryce Boston said that on Fridays, "we divide into groups, go over the whole school, and collect every- thing.

"One of the things we're going to plant in it is 'Knockout classroom's bins, but there is so much, it takes the whole class." In addition to those groups, Wetherington said a "literacy team was charged Roses' because they bloom year round." Jacob Crumbley added that at the end of each week, "after everything had been sorted, Mrs. Wetherington takes it to Callaway Gardens and they put it with their recy- cling." Has the project changed the students' perception of recycling and its importance ? "You bet," said Wetherington. "All of them comment on how they have encouraged their families to be more conscious of what they throw away and what they recycle. We are trying to change our behavior for now and the future.

In some communities, white page directories - becoming less relevant due to cell phone usage and on-line phone residen- tial listings - are being phased out or restricted. Because of advertising revenue, yellow page directories, however, are likely to continue being pdnted. A 'Call' for Recycling New Mountain Hill Students Gather500 Phone Books Over the past three months, New Mountain Hill students have been bringing in their phone books to be recycled. Students have brought in over 500 books this year. They weighed almost 1,200 pounds. Top recyclers in the school were: Dalton Whaley, John Moxley, Ty Cox and Kyle Burt. "All of our stnadents helped to save many trees from being cut down and kept those books from being put into landfills," said school spokeswoman Christina Badowski. New Mountain Hill is challenging other area schools to recycle phone books next year. and "Help NMHE save the planet."
