Hampton Bays Elementary School students are working to keep the earth green as part of a new recycling program sponsored by Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone.

The program officially kicked off at Hampton Bays Elementary School on June 5 with a visit from Bellone, who spoke to kindergartners about the importance of recycling. The kickoff included a recycling skit performed by fourth-grade students. 

As part of the pilot program, Hampton Bays Elementary School is one of six county schools furnished with blue recycling bins that have specialized lids for recycling paper, plastic, glass and aluminum. The school was also given an industrial scale that weighs the amount of materials it has recycled.
