The Members of the Mid-Valley Garbage & Recycling Association are pleased to donate $2,500 to the Salem Police D.A.R.E. program. This unique program began in 1997 with numerous bright red metal containers located at schools and businesses throughout the Salem area. Since then it has progressed into a direct donation to the Salem Police D.A.R.E. program from the local Garbage and Recycle Haulers.
Proceeds and direct donations since 1997, including this years’ contribution, total over $88,000! The M.V.G.R.A. helps purchase D.A.R.E. t-shirts for every graduate. If you have questions about community programs and services offered by the M.V.G.R.A., call the RECYCLE HOTLINE at the number listed below or visit their website at:
Don’t forget to recycle right: Plastics – bottles and jugs only. Paper and Cardboard – junk mail, greeting cards (no foil or glitter), magazines, newspaper, phone books, paperback books, paper bags, cereal type boxes, and cardboard that has not been contaminated by food. Metal – steel and aluminum cans that have been cleaned.

Over the next several years the program grew rapidly on the west coast. The Salem Police Department began their D.A.R.E. program in 1992 with one officer teaching full time in six elementary schools.

Central Point School Officers say the program D.A.R.E. is adding bullying and critical thinking to its program. “Sometimes there’s a disconnect between fifth grade and their high school years and that’s something we’re trying to fix now,” Officer J.R. Godley said.
