Chickasaw Nation’s Earth Day event collects loads of paper

Ada —

More than 15 tons of paper materials were collected during the April 22 shredding event at the Chickasaw Nation ReUse Center.

Paper collected at the event will now be recycled, instead of heading to the landfill, saving an estimated 42 cubic yards at the local landfill.

Local businesses, schools, government organizations and area residents took part in making the event the most successful to date.

“This is the best turnout we have had since the program started four years ago,” said Mack Peterson, with Chickasaw Nation environmental services. “The shredding service had to bring out an extra truck by noon, something that has not happened before.”

Major contributors to the amount of paper wastes recycled at the event include East Central University, Ada Public Schools and a local automobile dealership. The automobile dealership brought six full truckloads of materials, which was immediately shredded.
