Community helped needed for OBMHS Spring Recycling Challenge - drop off recyclables before Friday morning, March 6th

Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. Orange Beach Middle / High School is one of four schools in Alabama chosen to compete in the Spring Recycling Challenge by the Alabama Department of Environmental Management. 

Help OBMHS prove that Makos expect excellence in environmental stewardship! The public is asked to drop off recyclable materials at OBMHS on Wilson Boulevard at the west end of the high school campus. The school will be collecting items until the morning of Friday, March 6th. Each compartment in the bin is marked with acceptable items (no glass), which include the following: 

  • Paper - notebook, copy, magazines, non-corrugated cardboard (cereal boxes, etc.) and paperback books. 
  • Aluminum Cans - crush them and no tin/steel cans 
  • Corrugated Cardboard - break down and flatten boxes
  • Plastic bottles - #1 and #2 plastics, such as water, soda and milk bottles 

Glass is not being accepted.

ADEM returns Friday to collect the school’s entry for the competition.  As a bonus, the school will receive the profits from the aluminum recycling to use for the students! 

The Alabama Department of Environmental Management challenges schools to motivate students, teachers, and neighborhoods to increase recycling in Alabama.
