Within the first month of a cooperative recycling program focusing on laser, inkjet and toner cartridges, the SCPLS Library Foundation receives a check for recycling. David Kugley, owner of Rapid Refill, personally presented a check for $95+ to Delores Vess, SCPLS Web Coordinator, who is in charge of promoting the recycling program within Sevier County.
We, as Sevier County residents, are surrounded by one of the most diverse and beautiful communities in the area. As such, we are charged with protecting and cherishing our natural resources so “going green” is especially important and necessary. When we collectively recycle, we reduce the waste and damage that can harm our environment.
To help curb the destruction and pollution of our natural resources, the Sevier County Public Library System will continue to host drop-off points for discarded and used cartridges that can be reused and recycled. So, the next time your laser, inkjet or toner cartridge is depleted, “go green” and drop the used cartridge off at the Sevier County Main Library at 321 Court Avenue in downtown Sevierville; the Seymour Branch Library at 317 W. Macon Lane in Seymour; or, the Kodak Branch Library at 319 West Dumplin Valley Road in Kodak.
The cartridges will be recycled and all proceeds from the recycling process will go directly to the SCPLS Library Foundation to help fund the new Sevier County Main Library. For additional information or to donate recyclable cartridges, contact Delores Vess at (865) 428-7653.
