From every classroom and various other locations around Concord High School, students collect paper, aluminum cans, and plastic bottles. The recyclable materials are placed in special dumpsters and containers on campus and later picked up by a disposal company for recycling into new products. Students in the audience at the press conference, held in Mrs. O'Brien's science classroom, listen to Senator Torlakson.
