Puerto Rico CPA Society to host recycling event

As part of its environmentally friendly agenda, the Puerto Rico CPA Society will host a paper recycling event, Oct. 21 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Organization members will be charged a fee of $2.50 per box — up to five boxes — delivered to the Capital Center building in Hato Rey. Non-members will have to pay $5 per box, for the same five-box limit.

“We want to generate awareness of the importance of recycling, since in doing so we are avoiding, among other things, identity theft and forgery,” said CPA Society President Denisse Flores-Caldera.

Over the past three years, the CPA Society has held an annual recycling event to collect electronic equipment, which organizers said is “always busy and successful.” Reciclajes del Norte handles the task of recycling the equipment gathered and will be responsible for processing the paper received during Friday’s event.

Paper, documents and publications to be recycled can have stapled or metal clips. For more information, call 787-622-0900 or visit www.colegiocpa.com.
