FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.nbc33.com) - The Dumpster Drummers showed off their skills at Saint Jude School Thursday as part of a celebration marking the students' recycling efforts.

A lunchroom monitor came up with the idea, and with everyone's help, the school's lunch room trash has been reduced by 80-percent. The school also earns money from turning in things like chip bags, glue bottles and Capri Sun containers.

Students were also rewarded by having a big pizza party last week.
