Marker Recycling is happening at Barton!

Marker Recycling Program

All teachers now have a box in their rooms that is designated for recycling old markers. The program, Crayola ColorCycle is sponsored by Crayola (Crayola ColorCycle FAQs | crayola.com) but ALL markers can be collected no matter what brand and even including highlighters and dry erase markers!  This plastic can then be kept out of landfills and Crayola uses the most advanced plastic conversion technologies available today to make wax compounds for asphalt and roofing shingles as well as to generate electricity that can be used to heat homes, cook food, and power vehicles. 

Let your child know this is happening in their classroom and if you have markers at home you want to recycle, send them in with your child to put in their classroom box!  At the end of the year (or when your box is full!), it will be collected and sent off to Crayola.  Please contact Neela, Ani or Marnie Peichel with any questions (dmpeichel@gmail.com).

Thanks for helping us recycle instead of adding to the landfill!
