Lima Ohio -
Celebrating green energy, recycling and clean waste disposal, Lima students gathered at Allied Waste to showcase visual demonstrations of Earth Day. Lima students, grades 1-4, partnered with Allied Waste to learn about Earth Day, recycling and land use. After learning about Earth Day, each student submitted drawings that were judged by local officials and dignitaries. The collaboration is one way Allied Waste gives back to the community.
Four finalists, one from each grade level, were selected, and each of their designs have been blown up and placed on the side of one of two trucks. The four pictures will remain on the side of one of two active trucks for the remainder of the year.
