Students at Ben Franklin Junior High School in Stevens Point are working to clean up the environment.

This Friday they're holding an electronic recycling drive at the school.

School leaders say the program, run entirely by student members of the HOPE Science club, will help give the community a safe and environmentally friendly way to get rid of their electronics.

"When they're broken down, there are a lot of toxins in it that would be corrosive to the human hand, and if it just gets taken to a land fill that stuff breaks down into the environment," said Cindy Solinsky, a Science Teacher at Ben Franklin.

The drive will run from Noon until 5 pm at the school on Friday. It costs between $1.00 and $20.00 for each electronic you bring in.
