Recycling Club

The Recycling Club focuses on reducing the environmental footprint of our two campus school with the goal of one day becoming a zero waste institution. Reducing and recycling the paper, cardboard, glass and plastic at LTHS not only saves Illinois landfill space but also decreases the amount of money the school spends on weekly garbage removal.
The club depends on all LT students and staff to help out on a weekly basis to (as Sigma Xi, the Scientific Research Society put it in 2007) "avoid the unmanageable and manage the unavoidable."
