Saving up some extra recyclables to be collected during the month of April will help stock the Mission Viejo Library’s shelves with new children’s books, under a program the City’s waste hauler launches each spring.
Waste Management of Orange County donates $5 for every ton of residential curbside recycled material collected in April to the Friends of the Mission Viejo Library, which uses the funding to buy new children’s books for the library’s collection. Last year, the month-long campaign netted $4,811 for the Friends of the Library, and officials are hoping to raise more than $6,000 this year.
Residents can do their part by saving up their recycle material – newspapers; aluminum cans; junk mail; laundry detergent bottles; empty aerosol cans; phone books; magazines; plastic and glass bottles; cans; and cardboard boxes – for weekly curbside pickups in April.
