Supporting Your Library

How to get involved!

Funding Factory | Friends | Memorials | Gift Bricks | Campbell's Labels for Education| Paper Recycling


Cartridge CollectionThe Steger-South Chicago Heights Library has partnered with The Funding Factory to collect and recycle printer cartridges and cell phones. This fundraiser is FREE and simple because there’s nothing to sell, no paperwork to fill out and no deadline. The program runs year-round, accumulating constant income for our efforts. But we won’t get very far without your support. Please donate your empty printer cartridges and used cell phones to our library and we’ll take it from there! We will recycle the cartridges and cell phones through Cell Phone CollectionFundingFactory to earn new technology, recreational equipment, or cash. Click on the pictures to find out if your cellphone or cartridges qualify!
