The Fall Creek PTA toner cartridge recycling program needs some help in a couple of ways. The most immediate is help with clearing out the backlog of cartridges that have accumulated in the PTA closet over the year. I am planning to work on this next week (starting at 7:45 AM on Tuesday, May 28th and going until 8:30 and then back again on Wednesday at the same time if needed). A few people to help would make this go pretty quickly (we don’t need that many actually since the closet is pretty small).
I’m really looking at this as a great opportunity for someone to learn the process for next year. Since Noah and Chip are in the 5th grade, I will not be around Fall Creek next year to manage this. It is a relatively easy job, if, and it is a big if, everyone pitches in and follows the instructions on the bin to REMOVE the cartridges from their packaging. The most time consuming (and frustrating) part of this job is removing the donated cartridges from their individual packaging. So, even if you cannot help next week and you have no interest in taking over the job next year, you can make a huge difference in this program by actually doing less and not repackaging the cartridges in individual packaging material (plastic bags are fine, but no cardboard boxes, etc).
