PaperRetriever binRecycling is one of the simplest things we all can do to reduce waste, conserve resources, and be good stewards. And we can earn money while we do it!

Brandywine is taking part in the Paper Retriever Recycling program. This is a simple and free service to use for paper recycling. There is no charge to the church for the collection bins or the paper pick up and Brandywine will be able to earn money for any paper dropped off at our green and yellow recycling bins.

We need help from both the congregation and the community! Everyone can take part in this effort! This is an easy and convenient way for you to recycle your paper every week. It is easy to get started; just place an empty box or bin near your trash at home and place your paper in the box, then bring it with you to church once a week!

We will be recycling the following types of paper:

  • Newspaper
  • Church bulletins
  • Catalogs
  • Shredded paper
  • Theme or spiral notebooks
  • Magazines
  • Junk mail
  • Office paper
  • Fax paper
  • Colored paper
  • School paper
  • Notebooks
  • Folders

(If dropping off shredded paper, please put it in a bag. If dropping off theme or spiral books, please take off the front and back hardcover; the metal spiral may remain intact. You do not need to remove staples from the paper. Please, NO cardboard or phone books.)

We can earn up to $40 per bin. Our recycling bins will be located at the back of the exit corner of the church parking lot.
