The JB Green Team will once again be collecting paper and cardboard to help those in need. Proceeds from the fiber recycling will be distributed to food pantries in the area. Jefferson County residents can bring cardboard and mixed paper to the Dick’s Sporting Good’s parking lot from Wednesday, November 1st to Thursday, November 30th, 2017. Please note that the drop off paper container will be picked up when it is full and then returned to the Ft. Steuben Mall parking lot after the paper has been recycled at Valley Converting in Toronto.
Paper items include but are not limited to newspapers, junk mail, cereal boxes, magazines and phone books. Please place all items into a box or paper bag as we can no longer take plastic bags in our paper bins, or place the items lose into the bin. Please remember that paper plates, cups, napkins, candy wrappers or items soiled with food cannot be recycled.
The special paper recycling event is one way the JB Green Team, Ft. Steuben Mall, Valley Converting and the public can help to celebrate America Recycles Day on Nov. 15th /Stock The Pantry, and is the only nationally recognized day dedicated to the promotion of recycling programs in the United States.
