Here at Delta Middle School we are trying very hard to get a recycling center here because we have a lot of recyclable paper. Delta County is turning into a trash bin.
I believe along with my colleagues that if we had a recycling center, it would catch people's eye and they would follow.
Recycling protects and expands U.S. manufacturing jobs by placing more jobs out there. It reduces the need for landfilling and incineration. It does this by supplying a place for people to put their used recycling material somewhere.
By moving a recycle center to Delta, it will do three specific things. One, it will provide a "leading action" for Delta. Other people will see this and they will be inspired to do the same. Two, it will save DMS, DHS, GMES and LES families money in gas. Three, it will offer field trips. If we get a recycling center, we can allow students from GMES and LES to walk down and have a close-up experience with the center.
To conclude, this project is extremely important. We ask the Delta County Commissioners to please put a recycling center in Delta. This will be taken very seriously and will be taken care of and not mistreated.
