Charles City students selling junk turned treasure from semester class

Charles City, Iowa – Taking old items, some most of us would toss in the trash and turning them into useable items have taught Charles City eighth graders to be more energy efficient and environmentally friendly.

Teacher Amanda Rahmiller says a couple ideas exploded into having a sale called Rubbish Re-imagined.


Students spent a quarter of the year designing and up-cycling equipment.

Rahmiller says students even partnered with business for their creations.


The students have their items for sale in the Comet gym today from 12:45 to 2:15 and what ever is left is for sale from 9-10am.

She says there’s a wide-array of items are on sale.


Rahmiller added the funds will pour back into future projects.
