Recycling at HES
Hildreth Elementary School belongs to a recycling program which helps to earn cash, free technology, playground equipment and a variety of other useful supplies for the school. All that's required is to collect used Inkjet or laser printer cartridges, toner cartridges, cellphones, laptops, or small electronics.
If you would like to donate any of these used items, send them to the school with your child and have them deposit them in the white bin outside the HES library.
Our goal is an Ellison die cutting machine. We almost have enough reward points to make this happen.
Thanks. We appreciate your help. -- Claudia McKenna
