Conservation Station: America Recycles Day
“Paper Recycle Only” – see picture of Johnson Elementary’s bin) located outside the building. These bins are collected every 2 weeks and the weight of the recycled paper material determines the percentage of funds that school receives (I will be doing a more in-depth blog on this project at a later time). Classrooms and administration regularly deposit paper into the bins, but anyone help! I have a box I collect my paper materials in (see picture) and drive-by the school to empty it into the recycle bin. You can do the same. What can be recycled and turned into cash for the school – printed and unprinted copy paper, junk mail, envelopes, magazines, catalogs, and notebook paper. Most any paper can be recycled, but NOT – newspaper, cardboard or phonebooks!
