The Business Education Program and the Eagle’s Nest school store at Dryden High School have teamed up with Crayola to become involved in the Crayola ColorCycle program.
This program is put in place to help kids understand their role in protecting the environment and invites everyone in the community to take part to reduce the amount of markers going into our landfills and instead, be re purposed into things like asphalt shingles, pavement, etc.
Not only will “Crayola” markers be accepted, but any brand! This includes markers, highlighters, dry-erase markers, etc.!
If you have any – feel free to gather them up and bring them to the Dryden Public Library or the Dryden High School. It’s anticipated that other locations will set up marker bins and we’ll update you on when that happens!
Once the collection bins have been filled, they are sent free of charge via FedEx to Crayola where they will be recycled and or repurposed!
"We encourage all of our Keewatin-Patricia District School Board school's to also take part in this initiative, as well as all other local schools, businesses and organizations" - Dryden High School
