Mercer Island School District wins state recycling award

The Mercer Island School District was recently named a youth education recycler of the year by the Washington State Recycling Association.

All five MISD schools have launched and continue to run various green practices which help students, parents and teachers get involved with recycling and other waste prevention programs at both the school and home.

The district received the honor during a conference in Skamania, Wash.
