Domtar and Caraustar are rewarding 14 schools in Arkansas for their recycling efforts. The companies contributed a total of $105,211 to the schools for tossing their used paper into recycling bins.
According to a recent report by the Arkansas Democrat Gazette, the schools have recycled roughly 824 tons of paper during the last 12 months. This is up by 100 tons from last year.
“The money is each school’s share of the proceeds from the school-based paper recycling program,” the Gazette reported Tammy Waters, Domtar’s manager of communications and government relations for its Ashdown mill. “Now in its 10th year, this program provides students and teachers the opportunity to make a positive impact on the environment.”
Domtar furnishes the schools with recycling bins, while Caraustar services them and turns the fibre into recycled-paper containing products.
