N. Pocono Students Honored For Recycling Efforts

The student-run recycling program at North Pocono High School was given a Certificate of Recognition from the Lackawanna County Commissioners for its runner-up finish in the Greensylvania Fall initiative. The youngsters recycled 3.6 pounds per student, which entailed placing bins in the classrooms and cafeteria to collect newspapers, plastic bottles, cans and other general office products.
