Program Details

What is it?

The PaperGator® is a unique fundraiser where your non-profit organization (church or school) is paid to collect paper products and place them in a bin for recycling.

Why do it?

Being good stewards of our resources is a great reason by itself, but in this case you also earn funds for recycling!!

How does it work?

  1. Promote - Using PaperGator® artwork that is provided on this website, the organization will promote the program. Click here to view the files.
  2. Collect – Bring in recyclable paper anytime from your homes or any other available sources and place it in the PaperGator® bin. Each location will be set on a regular pick up schedule, we look to fill each bin at minimum every other week.
  3. Get Paid - You will then receive a check for the amount collected. Non-profit organizations are paid on a quarterly basis.
