Stratford Recycling Program Honored

Nearly 1.5 tons of paper have been recycled by Stratford High School so far this year, and today on earth day, they celebrated that milestone.

Dozens of people turned out for the 7th annual Earth Day barbeque at the town's recycling facility. Organizers say other communities across the area are looking to Stratford as a model for their future recycling programs.

Stratford hopes to have curb-side recycling pickup by 2010.
