Keisha Cubie, right, adds a piece of plastic to a recycled plastic city as fellow classmates of the 116th Street Elementary School look on March 28 in Los Angeles. The students helped launch the American Plastics Council's ``Bin It !'' recycling campaign in an effort to boost the amount of plastic bottles and jugs recovered at curbside recycling bins. According to Los Angeles recycling officials, only about 50 percent of the city's households participate in c urbside recycling programs. Plastic bottles recovered from consumers are recycled nationally into products such as garden hose, carpet and bottles.
