Over the last four months, contributions of paper for recycling in the Banner Graphic Retriever bins have earned nearly $500 for the Putnam County Humane Society.
All your newspapers, magazines, office and school papers, folders, fax paper, shopping catalogs and mail can be placed in the container for recycling.
Paper placed in the Retriever bin is sent directly to paper mills and is remanufactured into newsprint within a few weeks of collection. Paper Retriever is the global leader in the manufacturing and recycling of newsprint.
Last year, non-profit organizations raised over a quarter of a million dollars for community outreach programs and recycled more than 15,000 tons.
Benefits to the environment and community through recycling help reduce landfill use and saves water and energy. It also promotes environmental stewardship and education through recycling and environmental activities.
