Recycle Paper at our School!
You can recycle paper at our campus seven days a week. We earn money for paper dropped off in our green and yellow Abitibi Paper Retriever bins. This is an easy way for you to recycle your paper products every week and to help us raise money for our playgrounds, landscaping, books and student activities. Acceptable paper products include: newspapers, magazines, mail/envelopes and copy paper. Please remember to bring your paper and drop it in the Abitibi Paper Retriever bin. These three bins are free to use!
