Student council sponsors recycling effort
Waupaca High School’s student council will sponsor a paper recycling drive from May 21 to June 11.
This “green” event will not only raise funds for school events, clubs and charitable donations but also bring the school and community together to improve the sustainability of the environment.
Donations may be dropped into the dumpster, located at the loading dock in the high school’s student parking lot.
Items may be donated between Monday, May 21 and Monday, June 11.
Acceptable paper items include newspaper, construction paper, computer paper, paper bags, books, magazines and junk mail, as well as paper with staples, paperclips or a spiral binding.
Unacceptable paper items include tissues, paper towels, paper napkins, waxed paper, tin foil or paper which has contained food particles, such as snack bags, potato chip bags and paper plates.
Acceptable cardboard items will include corrugated cardboard, cereal boxes (take the wax lining out), cracker boxes and tissue boxes. Unacceptable cardboard items will be waxed boxes like juice boxes or boxes which had food in contact with the cardboard, such as pizza.
People should not bring plastic dinnerware, straws, dry erase markers, food of any kind, clothing, crayons, erasers, pencils, pens, styrofoam cups and containers, needles, plastic bags and full or half-full bottles of soda, water or other beverages.
