Mayor Daley says the drive starts Saturday and continues for about two weeks.

Twenty four organizations are competing to encourage residents to drop off recyclable paper at designated locations.

Within the next few weeks, residents in seven neighborhoods will receive notices from the computers for schools program regarding pick-up dates and times.
