Please remember to recycle your ink cartridges. It helps the environment and our school. We have a partnership with Cartridge World in Franklin Lakes. We receive $2 for laser cartridges and $.25 for inkjets. Unfortunately, Epson ink tanks are not accepted. Just send all of your empty cartridges in to Mr. Hershberger.
Help us keep cartridges out of our landfills!

Environmentally Friendly Holiday Tips:
Turn off holiday lights and decorations when you go to sleep.
Take reusable bags to the store. Plastic bags
very rarely get recycled. If you do use plastic bags, make sure you
collect them and bring them to the local supermarket to be recycled.
Use reusable gift bags instead of wrapping paper. Re-use wrapping paper from large gifts.
Lower the thermostat in your house a few degrees, especially when everyone is sleeping.
Shop online or try to get all your shopping done
in one trip. You can also help support the MPPEF by going to their site
and clicking on the Amazon link. www.mppef.org
At home make sure you are recycling everything that you can. (Paper, cardboard, glass, plastic, aluminum, metal)
