Help Pillars Academy facilitate recycling within our community. Allah (SWT) has mentioned in several places in the Quran about taking care of the Earth, its creatures, and not wasting. We would like to teach our students and our community how to be proactive in protecting the Earth and its resources by revamping our recycling program. Please bring your plastic bottles and aluminum cans to the school every Friday morning. We will separate them for you.
