The District School Board of Pasco County and US GreenFiber, LLC are pleased to announce a new Community Paper Recycling Program. Unlike some recycling programs, GreenFiber’s Community Paper Recycling Program accepts a wide variety of paper products. Participating schools will accept brown paper bags, cardboard, cereal boxes, construction paper, gift wrap, magazines, newspaper, paper, and phone books in eight-yard GreenFiber recycling containers. You can do your part by recycling these paper products from your home and/or business at a local school. Participating schools will earn 100% revenue from everything they recycle. You will save money by purchasing fewer trash bags.

The GreenFiber recycling containers feature a vivid green exterior and graphics of the GreenFiber Community Paper Recycling Program mascot – a green frog whose likeness is on education supplies that support school recycling efforts. The community benefits by reducing the amount of paper products that would otherwise be buried in landfills or burned at the waste-to-energy facility.

Refuse efficiency experts estimate that paper products account for almost 35% of landfill space; some estimates indicate that Americans throw away enough office and writing paper every year to build a twelve-foot high wall from Los Angeles to New York City.

Take the recycling challenge! Place all of your brown paper bags, cardboard, cereal boxes, construction paper, gift wrap, magazines, newspaper, paper, and phone books that you would normally throw away into a container for recycling. At the end of the week, bring your container of recyclable paper products to a participating school and place them in the eight-yard GreenFiber recycling container. “This is a great way for Pasco County’s residents and businesses to recycle their paper products! I hope that everyone will take advantage of this great opportunity and help our schools recycle.” said Karen Bryant, the District’s Former Recycling Coordinator.

“The GreenFiber Community Paper Recycling Program offers local benefits that will help teach our students about the importance of being environmental stewards,” said Tammy English, Recycling Program Coordinator for GreenFiber. “This service provides residents with a free, ecologically-sound way of disposing their recyclable paper materials, supports local organizations and keeps a measurable amount of paper out of landfills.” The paper products are recycled into insulation in Tampa and sold locally to stores such as Home Depot and Lowes. According to the Department of Environmental Protection, “Each ton of paper recycled saves 17 trees and 7,000 gallons of water. Recycled paper also saves 60% energy in comparison to new paper and generates 95% less air pollution.”

START RECYCLING TODAY!

Brown paper bags, cardboard, cereal boxes, construction paper, gift wrap, magazines, newspaper, paper, and phone books may be placed loosely in a participating school’s GreenFiber recycling containers. Please do not place glass, metal, plastic bottles, plastic bags, aluminum, string, or foam in the GreenFiber recycling container.
