Another successful phone book collection competition ends

Dawson Creek-More schools in South Peace participated in the annual telephone book inter¬school collection competition that wrapped up last month. Students in 18 schools collected 4,128 old SuperPages books, a small decrease from 2003.

All the phone books will be recycled into new phone books. Not only is recycling good for the environment, old SuperPages and Telus directories are worth 10 cents per book to the school.

Tate Creek School students collected the greatest number of books per student (5.04) and will be presented with a framed wildlife print in recognition of their efforts. Christine Wandling from Waste Reduction Office will make the presentation at a school assembly on Monday, March 8th at 8:45 a.m. on behalf of SuperPages, the sponsor of the inter-school phone book collection competition. All participating schools will also receive a cheque for $ .10 for each SuperPages telephone book and a certificate of appreciation.
