Paper Recycling at Olmsted Falls Middle School
The PTA paper recycling program at OFMS is in full force. The familiar green & yellow Paper Retriever bins are in the parking lot. Please encourage ALL your friends, neighbors and relatives to put their paper in the bin. Every time the bin is emptied OFMS will earn money while you help the environment!
You can recycle lots of different paper in the bin, much more than you can with curbside newspaper recycling. Just collect your items in a paper grocery bag (only these bags can be thrown in) or in a plastic bag or box, then dump the items into the bin (take the plastic bag or box home to reuse).
HERE IS WHAT CAN BE ACCEPTED IN THE BIN:
-Magazines & paperback books
-Posters & folders
-Self stick notes
-Junk mail & envelopes (don’t worry about the staples or plastic envelope windows)
-Shredded paper (please leave it in a tied plastic bag and poke a few holes in it)
The following items CANNOT be accepted:
-Plastic (EXCEPT the plastic bags holding shredded paper)
