In 2009, the Frostburg Lions Club began its recycling program as a mean of raising funds, in additional to helping our environment. The program has been more than successful.
Items that we recycle include:
Copier toner cartridges
Computer ink cartridges
Other small electronics
As a side benefit of the recycling program, we also recycle cardboard that comes with the various items,as well as paper, and copper wire from various accessories. Over 1,000 lbs of cardboard has been recycled, and the copper wire pays for our packing tape.
We have kept over 2,000 cubic feet plastic waste from our county landfill through our recycling efforts, and raised considerable funds that are recycled here in Frostburg.
Ask at your church, work, business, neighbors , relative and friends for their old items as noted above. Once you have a reasonable size box filled, contact us, and we'll make arrangements to pick them up.
