WAVERLY, N.Y. (WETM) — Throughout the day, 1,600 students from Waverly Central School District volunteered their time as garbage collectors and cleaned up various areas around the village.

Eighth grader Lauryn Wells of Waverly CSD said, “Just the fact that we all wanted to help make the community looking better and stuff like that. Just make a better connection with the earth and make it a better place.”

Another eighth-grader student Maddison Harvey joined the conversation adding, “The world is kind of nasty right now, and we’re trying to clean it out to make it a better place to live. It’s better to be in the community because most people see it. They think that it’s a better place to be here, and they feel welcomed.”

One student emphasized the fun of going outside and cleaning up the community to make it a better place.
