)-- People may now donate their used cell phones, empty inkjet and toner cartridges to Orland High School at the Student Store to help raise much-needed funding on-campus activities. Orland High School is taking part in a unique fundraising program designed to assist in preserving the environment and enabling the Associated Study Body to earn additional dollars for each cell phone, empty inkjet and toner cartridge donated during this collection.
Over 80 million cell phones are retired in the United States each year, with less than 10 percent being recycled. Dumping these no longer used items into our landfills could possibly add contamination to our soil. Orland High School can turn these used devices into cash. Don’t throw them away recycle them today.
Recycled phones are given new life. They are made available to markets in developing countries where they are very desirable, and you divert them from our landfills.
People may join Orland High School ASB in the effort as they collect and recycle used cell phones, empty inkjet and toner cartridges for their organization. Help with this recycling program will directly benefit student activities, the environment and bring communications to people whom could not other wise afford it.
