Staff and teachers of the Newcomerstown Exempted Village School District have been earning free technology equipment by participating in the FundingFactory Recycling Program.

They collect empty cartridges, cell phones, small electronics, and laptops from the community and send the waste products to FundingFactory in exchange for their choice of technology and recreation products, or even cash.

Companies interested in demonstrating a commitment to education and the environment can participate free of charge in the FundingFactory Business Support Program. FundingFactory will send each supporting business free prepaid shipping labels for the return of collected cartridges, cell phones, small electronics, and laptops.

By donating to Newcomerstown Schools, businesses help them earn the technology equipment they need for WNHS Radio and WNHS PEG Channel 21.

Community and business supporters can also drop off cartridges, cell phones, small electronics, and laptops at the following locations: Newcomerstown High School.
