Target Recycling is a recycling program managed by the Dalton-Whitfield Solid Waste Authority, which includes educational opportunities and recognition of participation to public and private schools in Whitfield County. Since the Fall of 2008 local schools have hosted Target Recycling Containers where they collect mixed paper products like cardboard, paper, office paper, books, cereal boxes, magazines, and newspapers. Each quarter of the school year the school with the highest recycling rate receives an award that will help improve the recycling program or beautify their campus. Awards include items like recycling bins for classrooms or benches made from recycled materials.
To improve the recycling rate at your school, contact Liz Swafford, Recycling and Education Program Coordinator, at 706-278-5001, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
