Girl Scouts: Recycle your markers at NCS!

Our local girl scout troup will be collecting and recycling used markers that are ready to be discarded.   The markers will be collected by the girl scouts and sent to a facility to be converted into clean fuel.  This fuel can be used to power vehicles, heat homes, cook meals and more!

Please help support our girl scout troop's efforts by sending used markers to school.They do not have to be crayola markers. Drop off boxes will be available to place markers in.

Thanks for your help!
