Cartridges for Kids


Clear Sky Elementary is recycling and would like your help.  We are recycling used cell phones, empty laser, fax, copier, and inkjet cartridges as well as, laptops, Palm Pilots, iPods, video games, DVD's and digital cameras for two reasons.  First, we are trying to preserve our environment by keeping these harmful items out of landfills, and secondly, to raise funds for our school/organization.

The recyclable items that are collected are returned to Cartridges for Kids ® (CFK) . Clear Sky is among more than 12,500 non-profit organizations nationwide that are helping the environment by recycling.

How can you help? You can turn your "trash into our treasure" and feel good about helping the environment all at the same time.  Most people have used cell phones to dispose of and almost everyone uses cartridges, either at home or at work.  They come from fax machines, copiers and printers. By donating these used items you can assist School/Organization Name* with earning much needed funds. (View the complete list of acceptable items HERE.)

Community and business supporters can participate at no cost .  CFK will send postage-paid pre-printed shipping labels to business supporters for the return of the used items.  These items can also be dropped off at the following locations:  CSE Main Office, Media Center or Computer Lab.  (The "official" drop box is in the Computer Lab.)
