In the nature preserve, Camassia, that surrounds the campus, trash lays littered on the ground. It has become such a problem that ASB officers, like Noelle Herrick, senior, are planning a school wide trash pickup. “I was disappointed to see the trash and was more disappointed in our student body,” Herrick said. 

Uncovered garbage cans outside allow factors like wind, birds, and wild animals to disrupt the trash. Geology teacher Geoff Bingham has been teaching at West Linn since 2005 and graduated in 1999. “Part of our large outside problem is that kids are throwing trash away outside of the school but they are not covered garbage cans,” Bingham said.
