Here at Nicholas County High School, recycling can be quite a controversial topic. Many students believe that recycling is good for the environment while others believe that it is not worth the money. “It really comes down to whether or not it is worth the money; I believe that it is beneficial to our environment, but the cost is just not worth it,” said James Tullier, a NCHS sophomore. While all schools in Nicholas County used to recycle, they have since stopped due to the extra cost and time that it requires. “I do believe that people should recycle, even with the extra cost. Plastic is destroying our environment, including our ocean, and something must be done,” said Kaitlyn Deems, anther 10th grade student. While recycling is an interesting debate, it is well known that plastic is polluting our Earth. Whether the benefits outweigh the cost is where the debate really kicks in, and it is always interesting to see what our fellow classmates have to say on the subject.
