THOMASVILLE — The Thomasville City Council, in conjunction with Keep Thomas County Beautiful, recognized Jerger Elementary School for their outstanding recycling efforts, during the June 8, regular session meeting.

Mayor Max Beverly presented students from Faith Shiver’s fourth grade gifted class with a certificate commemorating their achievement. Solid Waste Director Nate Tyler also presented the students with a unique, recycled award and named Jerger Elementary School as the Top School in Thomasville for America Recycles Day.

Jerger Elementary has been the top recycling school for three of the last four years; recycling over 20,000 pounds of materials this year alone. In all four years combined, Jerger has recycled the equivalent of almost 19 elephants worth of materials.

“This has been a tremendous effort by the Jerger students, and they truly deserve recognition for the great work they’ve done in our community,” Tyler said. “I would like to thank all the schools and students that participated in this year’s Recycle Bowl for their commitment to recycling.”

The 2014 Recycle Bowl, sponsored by Keep Thomas County Beautiful, involved 9,430 students from 13 participating schools in Thomasville and Thomas County. The competition takes place each year during October and November and has been held for the last four years. This year, the Recycle Bowl led students to recycle a combined total of approximately 68,502 pounds of materials.
