OPTIMIST CLUB OPENS NEWPAPER DROP BOX
The Optimist Club of Newport and Yaquina Bay announced today that they have found a new vendor for recycled newsprint. The drop box, located at NE 7th and Harney Streets in Newport, is again open for the community to re-cycle their old newspapers. The profits from this project fund community organizations that serve Newport’s youth.
“International Paper has stepped up and is now taking our clean, loose newsprint. I want to especially thank the Newport News-Times, Thompson’s Sanitary Services, Inc. and the Lincoln County Fair Board for their support these last three months.” says the always optimistic Rebecca Cohen-Rozewski. “This project wouldn’t happen without them.”
The Optimist Club meets in JC Market’s conference room the second Thursday of each month. Anyone interested in being a part of this very positive minded group is welcome to join them. For more information, please call Cohen-Rozewski at (541) 574-3368.
