Members of the Primetime Collaborative, including Northfield’s Promise Fellows and youth at the Middle School attended a field trip to the Rice County Recycling Center to learn about recycling in the community. The recycling process and the do’s and dont’s of recycling were covered in the comprehensive field trip at the Recycling Center. Did you know that anyone in the community can make the trip to the center along highway 3 and grab free paint for their own personal use? Did you know that you can recycle old tires, paint, and an assortment of cleaning supplies? This trip was one in a series of event for the Promise Fellow’s National Global Day of Service events. There is an important Recycling Summit that will be held February 5th at the High School Auditorium at 7:00pm in which everyone in the community is invited.
