Students at Sage International School are making strides to help improve our community, starting with Julia Davis Park.

They designed and developed new recycling bins that are unique because they can be attached to an existing park trash can holder and don't require any additional parts or concrete on the ground.

Sage students and staff built a prototype container out of duct tape and cardboard on a small scale before using plywood and chicken wire for the model they presented to Parks and Rec.

ECCO Safety Group donated time and resources toward engineering the final product which led to nine containers being installed at Julia Davis Park now. The city will compare with other models, then decide whether to add more.

Way to go kids!
