Albany- Dougherty County elementary and middle school students are making sure the community is clean and environmentally safe.

Students at Lakeside Elementary are collecting old phones books to help make Keep Albany-Dougherty Beautiful's recycling project a success.

So far, the school has collected hundreds of books, and several students told us why they love helping the environment.

Fifth grader, J.T. Santos, says, "Everyone is excited about helping with the recycling project. We just want to keep Albany looking great."

The elementary and middle schools that collects the largest amount of telephone books will receive five hundred dollars from Merck to purchase environmental books and videos for the school's library.
