For when the outdoor seasons begin, Shen should put recycling bins on its athletic fields. During this Fall’s season, I had not seen one recycling bin on any of the fields- just garbage cans, which is ridiculous considering how so many players and spectators bring plastic water bottles to sporting events. I would bring as many as I could home with me and I encouraged others to bring their water bottles home to recycle as well, but still, many were either left on the benches, on the ground, or in the garbage cans. We should get recycling bins because 1. Shen may deposit them and receive money for them 2. It will make our campus prettier and neater and 3. They are better for the environment And no, this is not the first time I’ve brought this up to the school or a school official. Thank you
