Houlton School is holding a paper drive April 1-30.
Members of the community can drop off their paper at a semi trailer parked in the east parking lot at the school, 70 County E.
Recyclable paper includes newspapers, magazines, catalogs, business papers, junk mail, telephone books, folded cartons (cereal boxes, cake mix boxes, cracker boxes, pasta boxes), corrugated boxes, paper egg cartons and paper bags.
“The wide variety of papers we are collecting from the community will help us reach our goals of increasing awareness and caring for our environment,” said Houlton Principal Ann Mitchell.
“Though we know many families are able to co-mingle paper with plastic, glass and aluminum through their local waste collectors, we’re asking families to save and drop off all of their paper here at Houlton. Our paper drive creates a win-win solution for us and the community.”
Proceeds from the paper drive will be used to support Student Leadership Council projects including prairie restoration and greenhouse repair, composting and garden projects.
