When students return to schools this week, they will be helping the environment.
CBS 3 media partner Mass Live and The Republican reports that a new policy is going into effect, which requires all test and homework papers, plastic water bottles and metal to start being recycled.
The recycling will also help with the city's budget, as it can sell items it recycles rather than paying a fee to discard the trash.
