NORTH BABYLON - Sixth-graders from Robert Moses Middle School are working hard to keep their school green.

The students, who are part of the school’s Environmental Recycling Club, go from classroom to classroom collecting paper and plastic bottles for recycling.

“It's really good for the kids, educationally,” says teacher Chris Brodmerckel. “They really grab ahold of it and want to do more for their community.”

Last year alone, the students kept 2 tons of recyclables out of landfills.
