Litchfield, NH: The Campbell Recycling Advocacy Program (C.R.A.P), was awarded $200 to assist with the purchase of a wire stripper. The wire stripper will help the students remove insulation from copper wire, donated by a local electrician, to then be redeemed to further the recycling programs efforts. The award was presented to the recycling team by John Dumais of NH Grocers Association/NH the Beautiful and Ray Dube of Coca Cola Co./NH the Beautiful. Stacey Morrison and Sarah McGraw of Northeast Resource Recovery Association/ The NRRA School Club were also present.   New Hampshire the Beautiful commends the efforts of the recycling team for their exceptional recycling program in addition to the faculty advisor Dennis Perreault .

The Campbell Recycling Advocacy Project is responsible for organizing and administering the recycling program at Campbell High School.  There are currently thirteen students enrolled in the program with a similar number preregistered for the second semester.  This program is one of, if not the only, self-sustained, student operated school recycling program in the state.  They currently recycle paper, cardboard, plastics, aluminum cans, steel, plastics bags and wrap, and electrical wire.  It was because of their unique program that NH the Beautiful awarded Campbell High School with this special grant.
