Paper recycling event yields great success
City of Kansas City, Mo., and Jackson County, Mo., staff, employees and residents participated in the Paper Recycling Challenge for the America Recycles Day activity on Nov. 15. During the challenge over 9,500 pounds of paper was collected, shredded and recycled. Four City locations were open to residents to contribute and participants received an eco-pen, pad and educational material.
Since 1997, activities have taken place across the country creating opportunities to educate about recycling and the value in preserving resources. On this day, various organizations and volunteer groups across the metro area participated in recycling activities.
