Support Us by Recycling

Friends of the Auberry Library is now part of the nationwide eScrip Recycling Program. What does this mean? We don’t have to sell anything, the program is free and we get paid to recycle empty inkjet and laser printer cartridges.

We’ll make more money if the items are on the price list, but even if they’re not they will be recycled responsibly. The eScrip Recycling center is ISO 14001 certified.

We would be very grateful if you, your business, or workplace could help with our fundraising venture. All you have to do is collect the inkjet and laser printer cartridges that you’d normally throw away. You can drop them off at the Auberry Library.

Together we can turn this waste into cash for our nonprofit with eScrip Recycling. It’s an easy way to raise funds, and it helps teach us a valuable lesson about the variety of materials that can be recycled and reused. This program will only succeed with your support. Thank you for your help in recycling.
