Rams Unified has been collecting bottle caps since last spring for their bench project. With the hope of completing the project by this spring, their goal is to collect at least 300 pounds. Working with only plastic caps, they have been able to collect 200 pounds so far.
The club decided to take on this project because they felt it would be a good project for students to be more inclusive, and it was also a way to get the community involved.
“Our ultimate goal is to acquire a bench for the high school. Our club also wants to practice recycling, demonstrate problem solving skills, and show others the results of their work,” said Rams Unified Sponsor Ashley Stroud.
Anyone can support this project by collecting and sending cleaned caps to Room 205. The caps or lids cannot be over 8” in diameter and should not contain metal or glass. All the caps need to be turned in by spring of 2021 to Room 205.
