The Friends of the Mission Viejo Library received $4,242.75 from the City’s waste hauler, Waste Management, for residential recycling in April. Waste Management donates $5 per ton for the amount of recycling collected from Mission Viejo residents. During the past 12 years, the company has donated $58,828 to the Friends of the Library and has recycled over 11,766 tons of material during the month of April. This year, residents collected 849 tons of recyclables during the month-long campaign.
The money will help stock the Mission Viejo Library’s shelves with new books.
