BOGOTA, N.J. -- The Bogota Public Library is helping the community recycle markers, participating in Crayola's ColorCycle program.

The library has set out a box to collect old and used Crayola makers. The collected markers will be sent to Crayola to be reprocessed. According to Crayola, the program accepts all brands of plastic markers, not just Crayola ones -- and even dry erase markers and highlighters.

The program is mostly directed at schools, "to help kids understand the importance of their role in protecting the environment." The company says the program will keep hundreds of tons of markers out of landfills. For more information about Crayola's program, including how to get your school involved, visit its website.

The Bogota Public Library is located at 375 Larch Ave., in Bogota. To keep up with libary activities, visit its website, or follow it on Facebook or Twitter.
