City Offers Used Greeting Card Recycling Event for Valentine's Day
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - The City of Morgantown will hold a greeting card collection event from Feb. 15 to March 15 at select locations.
It is estimated that Americans buy over 6.5 billion greeting cards each year, with Valentine's Day being the second most popular holiday to buy greeting cards during. The City of Morgantown created this collection event to help divert how many greeting cards are sent to the landfill this year.
Drop-off boxes will be at the Morgantown Public Library, Spruce Center at 430 Spruce Street, Kroger in Sabraton and Evansdale, and at Walmart on Hornbeck Road.
Cards that are collected will be donated to local charities, schools, and daycares to be used as crafts and to create new cards. If you would like to receive card donations, send an email to Vanessa Reaves at email@example.com.
