Ink Cartridge Recycling
Atkinson Elementary participates in ink cartridge recycling through the Funding Factory. This is a fund raiser where you have to buy nothing! How great is that?
Quite simply, all you have to do is donate your used ink cartridges to the school. Every 2 months they are picked up and we receive a small stipend for each cartridge. You can also donate used cell phones. Please click to see which ink cartridges or cell phones qualify for the program.
Your donation will help protect the environment. Did you know that one cell phone disposed of improperly can pollute up to 132,000 gallons of drinking water? Your unwanted cell phones and ink cartridges will be recycled in accordance with EPA regulations or refurbished and recycled. Depending on the nature of the items you donate, your donation could be tax deductible.
So, don’t toss those old cell phones and ink cartridges! Send them into school with your child. They can be dropped off in the media center at any time. Proceeds from this fund raiser are used to purchase new books, AR tests, and other instructional materials for the children of Atkinson Elementary School!
