The Trinity High School Be the Change Club is a climate activism club focused on sustainability and lowering the CO2 impact within Trinity County.

To achieve this goal, the club is having a recycling drive from 4 to 6 p.m. Friday, Oct. 9, in the side, staff parking lot at Trinity High School. The club is accepting all CRV plastics, #1-5, glass and aluminum. Sorting will be done on site, with club members happy to assist in distributing the various items into provided cans.

Several cans have been donated already from local businesses, and the club is in need of more to store the recycling until hauling the donated items to Big Foot Recycling in Redding.

With this monthly drive, the club is raising funds to eliminate plastic utensils from the high school cafeteria, bring climate awareness events to the county, and provide sustainable, climate activism centered items for sale to support future training in environmentalism for the student club members.

For anyone who wants to donate more cans to the club, contact Rachel La Fein at

The Be the Change Club Recycling Drive is scheduled to be held the second Friday of each month at the same time and location.
