MHS Environmental Club Collecting Plastic

The Meridian Environmental Club asks the FCCPS Community to collect Plastic Film Waste and drop it off at the Meridian main entrance. 

Please help keep plastic out of waterways by collecting plastic film for the NexTrex Challenge — a challenge from Dec. to April to collect and weigh as much plastic film trash as possible. Students are asked to set up plastic film collection spaces in their homes and bring them into collection bins at school periodically.
