Through our paper recycling program,
we raise a small amount of money for mission,
and we keep a lot of paper out of the landfill.
Drop your clean paper in our PaperRetriever Recycling Bin
which is located at the southeast corner of the church parking lot.
What goes in:
- newspapers & inserts
- magazines & catalogs
- office & school papers
None of the following:
- no cardboard
- no food boxes, fiberboard or chipboard
- no textbooks or hard cover books
- no phone books
We began our Paper Retriever recycling in April, 2010.
Since that time the amount of paper we have collected and recycled through this
program has saved trees, space in landfill,
and many kilowatt hours of energy.
Up to June, in 2012, we had recycled six tons (12,000 lbs) of paper:
that is equivalent to 102 trees,
18 cubic yards of landfill space,
24,612 kilowatts of electricity,
it reduces air pollution by 360 lbs,
and saves 42,000 gallons of water (spared from the manufacturing process).
(It’s also the same as stuffing an elephant into our recycling bin!)
Save and bring your recyclable papers to us, and help us save a tree, and make a difference.
