BULLHEAD CITY – After an important classroom tool is used, several Bullhead City School District (BCSD) campuses now recycle and donate rather than dispose. BCSD’s six schools receive dozens of copies daily of the Mohave Valley Daily News through Newspapers in Education (NIE), an international program that promotes and increases children’s literacy by using newspapers as a teaching tool.

Last year, several of the schools began collecting the used papers not for the landfill, but for Bullhead City’s Animal Control and Welfare (ACW) – the animal shelter.
Clean non-glossy newspapers are often used to line some cages. At Bullhead City Middle School (BCMS), students in the Lifeskills Program help collect the papers and ready them for ACW. School officials say they take pride in their effort and know that they are helping with a valuable service.
