The Clintonville Public Schools IT (Instructional Technology) Department held an electronic recyclable day on Saturday, Aug. 20.
The Clintonville High School Football Team provided the “man-power” to unload the vehicles that showed up with their recyclables. Bobby Wespetal, a 2011 graduate of CHS and working for the school district in the IT Department, spearheaded the electronic recycling event.
Along with IT associate Gary Putnam and assisted by summer helper and 2010 CHS graduate Joe Maslanka, the football team unloaded 221 vehicles during the four hours of collection.
What a fantastic opportunity for our young athletes to give back to their communities. It was very rewarding watching these young athletes interact in such a positive manner with members of the local communities,” commented head football coach Bob Petermann. “It was also interesting watching the reactions of these young adults to the old technology items that were brought in and recycled. A huge thank you goes out to Bobby, Gary, and Joe for sponsoring this event for the local area. It was a win-win event for all involved. The local residents received an opportunity to recycle electronic items for free and the young adults had an opportunity to give back to the people who support them on the athletic field.”
