Some students start the first recycling program at their school, just in time for Earth Day.

This month, four seniors at Hazard High School began collecting paper.

"Project Go Green" is their community service project as Valedictorians and Salutatorians.

"We wanted to do something that not only helped the people in our area, but the world," said Senior Rachel Evans.

"We have three buckets. One in the office, library and the computer lab and the buckets are actually really full by the time we take them to the recycling center," said Senior Sanjana Shankar.

After graduation, the group plans to pass the project on to underclassmen so it can be expanded.
