Convenient Mixed-Paper Drop-off for Parents, Students and Others
Got paper? If so, you’re eligible to participate in the Mixed Paper Dumpster Drop-Off Program to help Fort Lauderdale public and private schools increase recycling in our City.
The Mixed Paper Dumpster Drop-Off Program is open to everyone. To take part, simply drop off the following materials at any of the participating schools:
- Cereal boxes,
- Clean pizza boxes,
- Copy paper,
- Junk mail,
- Large corrugated cardboard,
- Magazines and catalogs, and
- School and home office paper (any color).
Participating schools will have a dumpster located on the campus that is designated for all acceptable program materials. The dumpster may be used by residents to drop off recyclable paper goods.
Multi-family residents who do not have a basic newspaper recycling program may use the dumpster to recycle newspaper and all other clean scrap paper. However, residents that have a blue recycling cart should continue to recycle their newspapers at the curb and bring all the rest of their household paper to one of the participating schools.
Operational costs for the delivery and collection of the dumpsters have been offset through the generosity of local sponsors.
