Recycling Bottles for classes

ENTRY DESCRIPTION

I would like more children to recycle bottles and cans instead of throwing them in the garbage.

I would invent a recyling bin with a detachable pail where children could pour out their unfinished drinks and deposit into the recycle bin. These bins could be placed inside the classrooms or just outside the door of each division and one class per week be responsible for emptying the pails and collecting the empty containers. Money could be used in each classroom for extracurricular activities of the student's choice. It will also teach them to be thrifty.
