ND middle-schoolers' recycling app wins national award


Soon-to-be seventh-graders in Fargo have garnered some national attention for an app they created to spur more recycling, WDAY reports.

The Recycling Bin app allows users nationwide to find nearby recycling centers and make lists of favorite recycling drop points, the station reports. It solves a simple problem, student Joram Stith tells the station: "A lot of people don't recycle, because they don't know where to recycle."

The app took top state honors in a contest sponsored by Verizon – and then won one of five national awards in the contest.

The free app is available in the Google Play store, and about 500 people have downloaded it so far WDAY reports.
