OMS Recognized by Keep America Beautiful, DC

On Arbor Day, Keep America Beautiful featured Olive-Mary Stitt and its Plastic Film Drive initiated by the Ecology Club last fall. In the weeks leading up to America Recycles Day, OMS students collected bagel bags, dry cleaning bags, plastic shopping bags, packing pillows and shrink wrap from paper towels, water bottles and tissue packs. All of this material was then taken to Jewel on Rand Rd for transfer, meltdown and reuse. Many families continue to collect this material at home and bring it to Jewel, Target, Trader Joe’s and Best Buy for proper recycling. Great job OMS families!
