PTO offers recycling program

School districts and nonprofit organizations across the county have been dealing with huge budget cuts, but Vienna Grade School has found a way to supplement their finances to get the funds they need.

The Vienna Grade School PTO is participating in the FundingFactory® Recycling Program! This fundraiser is free and simple because there’s nothing to sell, no paperwork to fill out and no deadline.

The program runs year-round, accumulating constant income for the PTO’s efforts.

Please donate your empty printer cartridges, cell phones, small electronics, and laptops to the school and they’ll take it from there.

The PTO will recycle the cartridges, cell phones, small electronics, and laptops through FundingFactory to earn new technology and/or recreational equipment or cash.

Last year alone, more than 300 million cartridges were thrown away, while 30,000,000 cell phones were tossed or replaced.

VGS is alleviating the volume of waste that goes into landfills, while collecting cash they need to keep the school running smoothly. Your help is vital to the fundraising success.

Cartridges, cell phones, small electronics, and laptops can be dropped off at Vienna Grade School or call the school to make arrangements for pick up.

If you have any questions about this great opportunity, please feel free to call Sara O’Neal at (618) 771-6876 or email her at onealsara@live.com.
