Electronics Recycling, April 18-22

Danebo will be partnering with Next Steps Recycling next week (April 18-22) to provide families an opportunity to recycle old electronics items and for our school to earn funds through a recycling competition.

There will be a bin in the front office for you to drop off any item that has a plug or takes batteries, working or not, and we earn credit for each pound of items that are recycled.

If you aren’t able to bring your recycling items in to Danebo, you can drop them at Next Steps Recycling (245 Jackson Street) between 8:30 am and 2:00 pm Monday through Friday. Mention Danebo when you drop items off, and we can earn credits for the competition through April 30th.

HERE is the flier that went home with students this week. Thanks for supporting our recycling efforts at Danebo!
