Recycling fundraiser could help beat budget crunch at Patton

Middle school students and staff collect old electronics for recycling and earn new gear — and even cash — for the school

Old laptop computers such as these can be turned into new tech gear and even money for students at Patton Middle School, through a recycling program.

EAST MARLBOROUGH — Students and faculty members at Charles F. Patton Middle School have been earning free digital cameras 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 CFPMS businesses help them earn the technology and or recreational equipment they need.

Community and business supporters can also drop off cartridges, cell phones, small electronics, and laptops at the Charles F. Patton Middle School.

To learn more about supporting CFPMS please call Robin Martin at For more information, visit, or call, toll-free, 1.888.883.8237.
