SCHUYLER FALLS - The Adirondack Wilderness Foundation is helping the environment by participating in the FundingFactory Recycling Program.
AWF members collect empty laser and inkjet cartridges and used cell phones from the community and send the waste products to recycling business FundingFactory.
Companies interested in demonstrating a commitment to education and the environment can participate free of charge in the FundingFactory Business Support Program. FundingFactory will send each supporting business free prepaid shipping labels for the return of collected cartridges and cell phones. By helping the AWF, businesses can help them save the environment.
The AWF will also earn some money that they will use towards be an advocate in providing a quality park through political activism, park recreation, and conservation education to the people of the Adirondack Park, while protecting the park's wild lands and waters.
One of the following team members will gladly pick up your items: Evelyn Ano, Jim Hewitt, Virginia Hewitt, Bill Rutz, Lionel Simard and Jen Tower. Community and business supporters can have their cartridges and cell phones picked up by e-mailing the AWF.
