Feagin Mill Middle School Recycling Nationally Ranked

Feagin Mill Middle School (FMMS) has joined FundingFactory, a program to fundraise through recycling.  The program has enabled FMMS to purchase two slates to interact wirelessly with interactive whiteboards. 

FMMS has been ranked in the top six percent of schools and top 10 percent nationally regarding its recycling efforts.

The FundingFactory program recycles empty printer cartridges and cell phones in return for a check or redemption points toward purchases. 

FMMS sent in enough cartridges and phones to rank number 526 out of 9,593 schools for total qualifying items sent in for the past 12 months.  The school used the earnings to purchase two SMART AirLiners. 

FMMS Principal Dr. Jesse Davis encourages the public to recycle cell phones and ink cartridges by donating them to the school. 

FMMS is located at 1200 Feagin Mill Road in Warner Robins.
