The 25th annual Allegany County Phonebook Recycling Campaign will take place from April 3-April 28. Cash prizes will be awarded to the schools that collect the most phonebooks: first place $200.00, second place $150.00, third place $100.00, fourth place $75.00 and fifth place $50.00. Please encourage your student to participate and learn the importance of recycling.
Please send phonebooks to school with your student. Collection boxes will be available just inside the front door.
In 2016, ACPS students collected 4.493 phonebooks, diverting them from our local landfills.
