Congratulations to Dorris Intermediate School for collecting 3,944 pounds of textiles in the 2018 America Recycles Day Challenge. This was the third highest amount in Illinois.
The school earned $100 from USAgain. USAgain collects used clothes to protect the environment and provide affordable secondhand clothing options.
Clothing recycling is an ongoing project at DIS, there is a special collection box outside the school. America Recycles Day, a Keep America Beautiful project, is every year on November 15.
