TONER RECYCLING CENTRE
Our school has recently joined the T.R.C. program to help reduce industrial
waste. How can you help? Send any empty ink or toner cartridges from your
faxes or computers to school for recycling. What does the school get?
When our box is full of empty cartridges we send it away. A cheque will
be forwarded to us or we have the opportunity to purchase goods made from
recycled items, such as rulers, cups and park bench seats. Each empty
ink cartridge could have a value of up to $5.00
Winter ills are about again. Fresh fruit and vegetables are rich in Vitamin
C. They are safe snack foods for our teeth, as well as providing the body
with vitamins and minerals to help fight and prevent infections and sickness.
