White Paper Recycling


Found In: reduce/reuse/recycle, service project

I feel hypocritical throwing paper in the trash after teaching about tree conservation. So, I called a local recycling company and obtained two five foot tall bins to place in our school. All students and staff members are encouraged to use the bins to recycle paper goods. Once the bins fill up, eager students help bag the paper, weigh the bags, and post a graph showing the total amount collected. A parent brings the bags to the community drop off site. Some companies actually offer a small cash value for the paper. These proceeds can be used to buy a tree or help a charity. Just think of the prevented waste if all the Works4me subscribers each initiated such a program!
