everywhere, it's 40% of most people's trash, and it's VERY recyclable!
A few months
ago, we told you about the CAPE PAPER CAMPAIGN, an offshoot
of the MASS RECYCLES PAPER's mission to get an additional one
million tons of paper out of the trash each year. We're happy
to report that 9 Cape and Islands towns, including Chatham, and
154 Massachusetts communities have already signed the pledge
to commit to this worthy goal. Please recycle and use less paper

What if we all started reducing the margins on our printed paper?
What if we could get companies to adopt narrower margins as their

which of course means saving a lot of trees and cutting down
on a lot of waste.

HERO OF THE WEEK:
Chatham High School Student Audrey Hart has won our undying admiration
transporting newspapers used by Social Studies classes to the
Chatham Transfer Station's Recycling Area virtually every day!
She is keeping a huge amount of paper out of the waste stream.
We applaud you and thank you, Audrey!
