By accepting donations, the SAVE Club hosted a free recycling event on November 5 to help fundraise for the club’s activities. Other than an option to donate to the club, the event was entirely free to the public.

To help community members recycle, the Students Against Violating the Earth (SAVE) Club hosted a recycling event on November 5 at the high school by accepting items like appliances.
According to SAVE co-advisor Ian Burley, the event was designed to be “easy and convenient for [community members.]”
Burley said that the event allowed community members to drop off difficult to-recycle items for free.
Although the event was free, this recycling event was a major fundraiser for the SAVE Club, according to Burley.
“Because it’s a fundraiser, we just rely on donations,” Burley said.
Those donations go towards different projects and sales that SAVE hosts throughout the year, like the plant sales and the Santa in the Greenhouse event.
Burley said that the greenhouse requires heat to grow plants, but the gas tanks that provide heat for the greenhouse have to be filled with gas that SAVE pays for.
According to Burley, he hopes that the event “helps people declutter” and “feel good about themselves.”
