New Recycling Club hopes to reduce waste on campus

Santa Ana High recently introduced the Recycling Club, meant to help reduce the waste of bottles and cans throughout the school.

The goal is to raise money for recycling bins for every classroom and for the money to be donated to necessary funds.

Christopher Morales is the president of the club and the secretary is Eduardo Gonzalez. Kimberly Garcia is the recently elected vice president alongside new treasurer, Diego Rodriguez. 

Club meetings are held Wednesdays during lunch (11:34-12:09) in Room 4203. Members are expected to attend a meeting at least once a month and follow the club’s constitution.

Community service can be earned as well. Members are assigned a teacher and bin and are meant to keep track of it. They are responsible for checking if the recycling bin needs to be emptied or needs a new bag. When the bin is full, members are to notify the president. Members can also receive community hours by staying after school and sorting the recycling.  

This club is a great way to show care for the environment and help out the community. 

“Students noticed that there were a lot of water bottles that were not being recycled so it was really bugging me because in my high school we had a recycling program,” Ms. Lopez, club adviser said. “So I asked if anyone wanted to lead the club now, so I could help them put it on their resume and be better for their college applications to start it and Christopher Morales volunteered to do so.”
