    FedEx selects Keystone Science School as beneficiary of recycling program
    KEYSTOINE
    - The Keystone Center’s program division Keystone Science School has
    been selected as the beneficiary of an inkjet cartridge recycling
    program launched in early August by FedEx and EnviroSmart. Proceeds
    from the program will provide partial scholarships for up to 100
    students to attend Keystone Science School’s summer education
    programs.The pilot program, launched August 4 at all seven FedEx
    locations in Memphis, Tenn., encourages FedEx employees to deposit used
    inkjet cartridges in workplace collection containers for recycling by
    EnviroSmart – the world’s leading independent recycler of printer
    cartridges. EnviroSmart uses FedEx to ship the used cartridges to its
    recycling center and also pays FedEx for each recycled inkjet
    cartridge. FedEx’s goal of collecting 8,000 cartridges by the end of
    2006 would generate about $10,000, which FedEx is donating to support
    Keystone Science School’s education programs.”Upon successful
    completion of the Memphis pilot program, we hope to expand it with the
    ultimate goal of having collection containers at all FedEx office
    locations,” said Mitch Jackson, managing director, corporate
    environmental programs, FedEx Express. “This project shows the value
    our employees bring, not only for customers like EnviroSmart, but for
    our communities as well. FedEx is proud to be working with EnviroSmart
    and The Keystone Center, which actively provides community support
    through its educational programs and continually demonstrates that the
    sound education of a child secures a sustainable future.”"The Keystone
    Center is thrilled to be partnering with FedEx and EnviroSmart on this
    unique program that will enable economically disadvantaged youth to
    attend Keystone Science School’s Discovery Camp, Counselor Assistant
    Program and Keystone Mountain Adventures,” remarked Kasey Geoghegan,
    director of development and community relations at The Keystone
    Center.EnviroSmart collects and remanufactures used inkjet cartridges
    so they can reenter the marketplace as consumer goods. “Most inkjet
    cartridges can be reused more than once, therefore, EnviroSmart is
    pursuing a closed loop solution for 100 percent of the empty cartridges
    that are received through our nationwide collection partners such as
    businesses, schools and charity organizations,” said George Skivington,
    president of EnviroSmart. “With the help of our collection partners,
    EnviroSmart can save more of these resources from landfills and give
    the financial and environmental benefits back to our communities. We
    are very excited to be working with FedEx and The Keystone Center on
    the FedEx Employee Inkjet Recycling Program.”Inkjet cartridge recycling
    bins are also in place at The Keystone Center’s headquarters at 1628
    Sts. John Road in Keystone. Individuals interested in participating in
    this program are welcome to recycle their inkjet cartridges at The
    Keystone Center.
