Defining Reuse Today Compared to Yesterday!

Middle School and High School Students were asked to participate in an Oral History Project, sponsored by Perry County Waste Reduction and Recycling in conjunction with the Perry County District Library, Perry County Historical & Cultural Arts Society, and the Perry County Genealogical Society Memories Project.  The purpose was to encourage communication between youth and members of our community who may be several generations older and could offer a historic perspective and lesson on "trash and recycling."
