Attention Area Youth Organizations - Are You…


·         Searching for ways to raise money?

·         Looking to serve your community?

·         Concerned about the environment?


If so, your youth organization should apply to become the next “Lonsdale Area Youth Recycling Green Team”.  The youth recycling program is designed to involve youth groups in educating residents about the benefits of mixed paper recycling, increase residential recycling participation, and support area youth organizations.


As a result for helping to promote mixed paper recycling in the Lonsdale Area, your group will receive $15/ton for all the paper collected while you are the designated Green Team.


Groups are Responsible for:

·         Monitoring and maintaining the collection boxes located at Fred’s IGA Foods.

·         Inform the community about recycling

·         Being creative in promoting recycling
