Mission Viejo High School has a problem- a trashy one. Students flow in and out every day carrying with them plastic bottles and metal cans. With no place to put them, the bottles and cans are thrown directly into the trash. The same happens inside the classroom, but this time, paper included. As an avid environmentalist, I see the amount of waste that builds up when the bottles, cans, and paper could be recycled. Bottles, cans, and paper are not being disposed of properly, thus becoming a harm to our schools community, and ultimately the environment.
