DARE BENEFITS FROM CLOTHING RECYCLING: In June of 2008 Calvert County switched clothing recyclers so that the local D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) Program could take advantage of a fund raising opportunity created by an alliance between D.A.R.E. America and MAC Recycling. The program consists of MAC Recycling supplying clothing recycling bins that are located at each of our satellite refuse collection sites as well as the landfill. The way this has benefitted us locally is D.A.R.E. America is paid $500 per bin by MAC Recycling to use the D.A.R.E. logo on the clothing bins. D.A.R.E. America then puts $100 per bin that is located in Calvert County into an account for us to use for purchases related to D.A.R.E. The State D.A.R.E. Coordinator's Office also benefits from the bins in our County as well by also receiving $100 per bin. This money is used to offset training costs and other expenses associated with the D.A.R.E. Program Statewide. Initially there were 15 bins placed in the county and currently there are 17.
This partnership has also benefitted our County. According to Bill Teter, the Calvert County Recycling Coordinator, during the last half of 2008 and the first half of 2009, a total of 310.52 tons of clothing was recovered from the clothing bins which means that the county saved a total of $21,175.00 in disposal fees.
