New Program Recycles Pens for Charity

The Fordham procurement department has teamed up with New Jersey-based Terracycle to recycle Paper Mate, Sharpie and Expo writing instruments.

The effort is part a program that “up cycles” the used pens into new products and makes a donation to a charity of the donor’s choosing. So the next time your pen runs out of ink, don’t pitch it into the trash, which ends up in a landfill.

Donation containers can be found:

• on the Rose Hill campus—Faculty Memorial Hall room 128 and McGinley Center room 204;

• on the Lincoln Center campus—Lowenstein Center room 128A; and

• on the Westchester campus—room G13.

For every pen collected, .02 cent will be donated to the American Cancer Society.
