MIDLAND - A group of Midland ISD students are taking a proactive approach to the basin's trash problem; they're doing it by recycling.
Last year when Carver Center started up their student government, students decided that reducing their carbon footprint was a top priority.
Students came up with a plan to recycle paper, cardboard and even plastic.
They collect trash from each of the classrooms every Thursday and then Green Daisies, a recycling business, comes and picks it up.
Student Government Sponsor Bev Cain says this was all thought up by the students she and couldn't be more proud.
"Mostly the kids are just excited to be a part of helping the school. They initiated this without any thought of a reward. They just enjoy coming in and being part of helping make the school a better place for all of us," Cain said.
