The Mail Room and Copy Center has recently become a part of the nationwide Plastic Loose Fill council's "Loose Fill Collection Center" program

The Mail Room in Crescent City is now a Peanut Hotline collection center for EPS plastic packaging "peanuts."

The Mail Room will only accept clean plastic peanuts from local residents and reuse them in outgoing packages.

The Peanut Hotline was founded in 1991. The Hotine at 1-800-828-2214 or www.loosefillpackaging.com is a 24-hour, toll-free directory service for consumers to find out which local businesses accept plastic peanuts for reuse.
