Trash talkin' at high school

Students from West Chester’s Henderson High will get down and dirty this afternoon as the school’s Environmental Club holds its first Great Trash Party from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m.

In an effort to determine whether students have retained their lessons on environmental stewardship, they will delve into the trash bins outside the cafeteria and sort through a day’s worth of refuse. The goals include assessing the collection to see whether any recyclables got improperly tossed and inspiring more responsible lunchroom practices. And to dispel the notion that superintendents don’t occupy the trenches, Superintendent James Scanlon will join the Dumpster-divers. If that alone is worth a look, B. Reed Henderson High is located at 400 Montgomery Ave., just off Paoli Pike in West Chester.
