Defining Reuse Today Compared to Yesterday!

Perry County High School Students were asked to participate in an Oral History Project, sponsored by Perry County Waste Reduction and Recycling in conjunction with the Perry County Memories Project.  The purpose was to encourage communication between youth and members of our community who may be several generations older and could offer a historic perspective and lessons on "Defining Reuse-Today compared to Yesterday!"
