Recycling can benefit your community and the environment.

Printer Cartridges

If you would like to recycle your empty printer cartridges with the club, we can get a credit toward needed office supplies like paper and ink cartridges. Just bring your empty cartridges (either black or color) to a BVGC club meeting. This is an easy and simple way to help offset club expenses! Since we started this Worklife Rewards Program at Office Depot we have recycled 1,210 cartridges and received $2,619.75 in credits as of December 2021!

Worklife Rewards

Shop at Office Depot or Office Max in store and give them the phone number of 479-855-0169, printed on your membership card, for the Worklife Rewards. Request the receipt be printed for you and emailed so that it will be sent to the club's email for reference. The Club will get 5% back on paper, ink and copy services, 2% on everything else and $2 for each recycled cartridge (up to 10 per month) that can be used for our office supplies!!! We must make a purchase of at least $10 each month to receive our credits for the recycled cartridges. If you made a purchase and forget to give them your number, or if you ordered on line, please call Geri Hoerner 855-0203 with your receipt information and she can get credit for your purchase that month.

If you are a Board Member or Committee Chair and you are in need of office supplies or other items needed for BVGC that can be purchased at Office Depot, please check with the BVGC President to see if there are Rewards available for you to use.

Aluminum Pull Tabs

We collect the aluminum pull tabs from cans at our meetings and turn them in at the annual meeting of the Arkansas Federation of Garden Clubs to help support the Ronald McDonald House program.

1 Gallon Plastic Pots

Take 1 gallon (only) to the Village Waste Water at 380 Bella Vista Way, Bella Vista, AR. Leave pots outside the greenhouse to the left after you pass through the gate.
