WCCS: Looking into recycling fundraiser

August 10, 2012


COLUMBIA CITY — Whitley County Consolidated Schools is looking into using a recycling group out of New Haven known as PaperGator to recycle paper and draw more revenue back to the schools.
“We have the opportunity for them to come into our district,” said WCCS Superintendent Dr. Patricia O’Connor to the school board Monday at a work session. “It basically is a fundraising recycling effort.”
O’Connor said she talked to several principals on the subject, and none of them had any objections.
“We would get paid $25 for 1.25 tons of paper,” said O’Connor. “We would also determine where the bins go, one for each site.”
There is no cost to the schools, and each location would be set up on a regular pick up schedule, and the bin could hold newspapers, catalogues, magazines, office school papers, telephone books and notebooks.
“It is strictly for paper, but this could be a public drop off,” said O’Connor.
