Barnum Key Club encourages recycling donations

Members of the Barnum Key Club have been earning free money by participating in the FundingFactory Recycling Program. They collect empty cartridges, cell phones, small electronics, and laptops from the community and send the waste products to FundingFactory in exchange for cash. Barnum Key Club members are earning money for the Kiwanis and UNICEF Eliminate Project, which works to eradicate maternal and neonatal tetanus around the world.

Companies interested in demonstrating a commitment to education and the environment can participate free of charge in the FundingFactory Business Support Program. FundingFactory will send each supporting business free prepaid shipping labels for the return of collected cartridges, cell phones, small electronics, and laptops. By donating to Barnum Key Club, businesses help them earn the money they need to support the Eliminate Project.

Community and business supporters can also drop off cartridges, cell phones, small electronics, and laptops at the Barnum Community Education Office at the high school or Barnum Youth Center at the elementary school.
