MANCHESTER - School is back in session, but students aren’t the only ones returning to the classroom this fall. New Hampshire the Beautiful and the Northeast Resource Recovery Association are also heading back to schools across the state to teach students the importance of recycling and to implement lasting programs.

Through the School Recycling Club (the CLUB), both New Hampshire the Beautiful and the Northeast Resource Recovery Association work with students and educators to start and maintain new recycling programs or help improve existing programs to reduce waste and save energy in schools.

“What we really like about the program is that it’s an ongoing education that trains future generations to be more conscious of the environment and their actions,” said John Dumais, President and CEO of the N.H. Grocers Association and long-time member of New Hampshire the Beautiful's Board of Directors.

New Hampshire the Beautiful (NHtB) is a non-profit organization supported by members of the NH Soft Drink Association, the Beverage Distributors of New Hampshire Association and the New Hampshire Grocers Association. The collaboration between food and beverage companies has led to an array of programs to address litter and recycling issues and improve environmental awareness and education.
