One-Day Recycling Drive Brings In Tons Of Paper

Posted: Updated:
KALISPELL -

The Kalispell fairgrounds will be accepting all paper products in a recycling drive Saturday.

This marks the 22nd year of the Trees to Paper to Trees recycling drive.

Organizer Bette Albright says they usually take in around seven tons of paper.

The drive is completely staffed by volunteers, many are middle school students.

They invest the money they make selling the used paper to Pacific Recycling into the tree education program, where they talk to kids about ecology and why trees matter to a city.

"Now that we've been doing it as long as we've done it, they mark it on their calendars and come. They wish we would have it more often," said Albright.

You can drop off your separated recyclables at the north end of the fairgrounds between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. tomorrow.
