I’ve had a few inquiries lately about our recycling program. The Paper Retriever bins that we frequent are located at Brandywine Springs School (volunteers Matt and Christine McNeill and Elizabeth, Anna and Claire Gonye are all graduates) so the school is the beneficiary, not Success Won’t Wait.
Specific information about the program from the Paper Retriever website:
“The Paper Retriever® Program promotes recycling by placing distinctive green and yellow
Paper Retriever bins, at no cost, in highly visible areas at schools, churches and other non-profit organizations, which are then paid for the recyclable paper they and members of their surrounding community collect.
Organizations use these funds for playground refurbishing, beautification efforts, library enhancements, scholarships, field and mission trips, team uniforms and many other worthwhile projects.
The Paper Retriever program benefits society and organizations in the following ways:
Benefits the Environment and Community – Through the recycling of newspapers, magazines, catalogs and mail, each participating organization reduces landfill use, saves water and energy.
Promotes Environmental Stewardship and Education – Paper Retriever provides free materials to support each organization’s recycling program. We also work with the program coordinators to foster environmental stewardship through recycling and environmental activities.
Absolutely Free – There are never any hidden charges or deductions from the money earned. Participation, bin placement, maintenance and collection services are provided in return for your recycling efforts.
Unrestricted Funds – All Paper Retriever trucks are equipped with the latest on-board scales and computers allowing the weight of paper to be individually recorded at the time of pick-up. This allows each organization to be evaluated on its own merits and accomplishments. The revenue earned from this paper can be used for specific projects that the organization chooses.”
