Literacy Council, Joseph Behr Recycling partner up

To help celebrate National Literacy Month, Joseph Behr Recycling Center will donate 50 cents per pound for all cans recycled that are designated for The Literacy Council. People can bring their recyclable cans to any one of Joseph Behr’s three locations: 201 Wheeler in South Beloit, 1100 Seminary St. in Rockford, or their newest location on North Second Street, one block south of Machesney Park Mall. Cans dropped off must be designated for The Literacy Council for the proceeds to be donated.

The Literacy Council, a nonprofit corporation, is the only organization in the area that offers free, one-on-one instruction to adults reading at the lowest levels who wish to improve their reading, writing and English language skills.
