Volunteers at a Dickinson Press paper recycling event were impressed with the number of people who participated in the paper drop-off in March. That’s why we are doing it again.
Calls continue to come in from people who wonder how they can spruce up the city, help the environment and save a few trees by dropping off paper at our site.
Many in our community were saddened that Dickinson closed the 10th Avenue East recycling site recently because people were abusing it and throwing any junk they had no use for there. People need to take a little pride in their community.
For those abusers, make amends and recycle some paper this Saturday. You don’t need to fess up, just do it and maybe ease your conscience.
Well, this Saturday The Press will once again provide that opportunity from 9:30 a.m. until noon.
Those who wish to participate should pull into the first driveway nearest to State Avenue at The Press, 1815 First St. W. (closest to Pita Pit) and watch for volunteers.
If it’s raining or stormy, volunteers will be under the canopy.
Since our trial paper drive, a number of residents have dropped off paper unannounced.
We’d like to keep it to organized recycling drives so we aren’t digging through bins pulling out plastic bags. However, we encourage recycling. If you can’t make the drive, please call Editor Jennifer McBride and we can set something up.
If you intend to be sneaky and come on your own, please take the plastic bags with you!
For those coming Saturday, feel free to drop off office paper and newsprint. Please no excessive amounts.
Keep it green.
