Put Your Christmas Cards to Good Use

by Kirby Gibbs

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Now that Christmas is over Angelina Beautiful/Clean has come up with a neat way to put your Christmas cards to good use.

ABC is encouraging all Lufkin and Angelina County residents to recycle your Christmas cards. The front of the cards will be sent out to troops over seas. The back of the cards will be recycled. If you want to join this project all you have to do is drop your Christmas cards off at the Commercial Bank on First Street in Lufkin, the Chamber of Commerce or any Brookshire Brothers Grocery Sore. Angelina Bautiful/Clean will do the rest.

Amanda Anderson, the Program Manager for Angelina Beautiful/Clean told KTRE,  "Last year we recycled 1,800 pounds of Christmas cards and we hope to exceed that this year."

Angelina Beautiful/Clean will be taking cards until January 15th.
