St. Mark’s Recycle Program





We have a paper recycling bin, located across

the parking lot from the Community Building.  It

is furnished to us at no charge by the Abitibi-

Bowater Company, which provides 70% of the

paper used for all the newspapers currently

printed in the world.


Each ton of paper that is recycled saves:

* 4102 kilowatt-hours of electricity

* 60 pounds of air pollution

* 7,000 gallons of wate and

* 3.3 cubic yards of landfill space.

In addition, St. Mark’s will receive a payment

from the company each month, dependent on

the amount of papers we recycle.


Accepted items are:  Newspapers, Magazines

Mail, Catalogs, and School and Office Supplies.
