Master's Builder's First Lego League Team making it happen!


The Master's Builder's First Lego League team has collaborated with Reliable Sanitation to introduce household kitchen fats, oils, and grease to Monroe County. Our kids were the first to dump our can of grease yesterday! Bring your kitchen oils around to the back of the recycling center. The filtered and re-purposed grease will become biodiesel and you will be a recycling hero! Thanks, Reliable Sanitation Service for taking this idea from 9 middle schoolers on a mission and making it happen!
