Landmark High School in Spanish Fork kicked off the month of April preparing for Earth Day on April 22, 2010 by announcing a cell phone recycling program, as well as a paper recycling program.
The recycling of cell phones will help keep several trace heavy metals out of the nation’s landfills by reusing those materials for use in the production of new cell phones and other electronic devices. All we need is your cell phone, and remember to remove the sim card for those phones that use one. It does not matter if the phone works or nor. If you would like to drop off your used, unwanted cell phone, please bring it to the main office of Landmark High School, located at 612 South Main Street in Spanish Fork, the school is open during regular school hours of Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 3:30pm. The students will also benefit from the donation of the cell phones that dropped off by receiving money that they can use for activities and ether events.
In conjunction with the cell phone recycling program, Landmark is recycling old phone books, newspapers, magazines, and other forms of paper. Both of these programs are a great way to celebrate Earth day on April 22nd. If you would like to recycle your paper you can also bring them to the Landmark High and drop them off.
