By the book

Does your businesses have room to spare for a blue book recycling bin on behalf of a society that helps foster children?

SOS Children’s Village BC is looking for businesses where blue book recycling bins can be put on their premises, at no cost.

The society, headquartered in Cloverdale, is working in partnership with Discover Books on the fundraiser, which encourages recycling.

Other than providing a safe spot for the book bin, there are no added duties for the business owner. All maintenance and servicing is handled by Discover Books.

“So many books are going to waste each year, when it can be recycled for a better cause,” said Liz Harris, manager of corporate and community relations for SOS Children’s Village, calling the program an easy way for people to recycle books at their convenience.

SOS BC provides community-based family care services aimed at improving quality of life for children in foster care, and foster families, through a variety of programs.
