Madison Recycle Advisory Committee members Jennifer Dean, student representative, and Betty Vining, talked to students in kindergarten through fourth grade during Madison Recycle Week Nov. 13-19 at the Madison Elementary School.

They talked about the benefits of recycling everyday items. Levi Dube, a student at the school, assisted with the presentation. Dean and Vining donned vests attached with recyclables that can be found in any home. They also talked about how recycling not only helps the environment, but also lessens the impact upon the limited amount of landfill space.

Dean and Vining also carried a basket containing items made from recyclables which included T-shirts, a small triangle purse made from a tire, a toy truck, a Frisbee, a water can, and other items. They also talked about how to separate recyclables into individual proper containers for curbside pick-up or drop-off locations.
