KINGSPORT, Tenn. — For the second consecutive year, Domtar Corporation’s (NYSE: UFS) (TSX: UFS) Kingsport, Tennessee, mill will sponsor the Downtown Kingsport Cleanup from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Earth Day, Saturday, April 22.

Local educators who participate in the Downtown Kingsport Cleanup will receive five reams of Domtar paper with a valid teacher identification card. Registration will take place at 8:30 a.m. in the Northeast State at Kingsport parking lot, located at 222 West Main St. A redemption ticket will be issued to participants who provide proper identification. The offer is limited to the first 100 teachers who display their identification cards.

All volunteers for the Downtown Kingsport Cleanup are requested to meet in the parking lot across from the main entrance to Domtar.

The clean-up initiative is part of Keep Kingsport Beautiful’s second annual Clean Sweep Kingsport event, a community-wide beautification effort, combining a number of smaller cleanup activities downtown, along the Greenbelt and South Holston River Greenbelt, and in the Highland and Lynn Garden communities. All clean-up activities will be held on April 22 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.

“At Domtar, we take pride in bettering the lives of the individuals in our communities,” says Bill MacPherson, Kingsport mill manager for Domtar. “Investing in our communities is an expression of our value of caring. Our longstanding support of Keep Kingsport Beautiful has been a natural outgrowth of our shared interest in the environment. We look forward to continuing our commitment to making Kingsport more environmentally friendly and energy efficient.”

Following the Clean Sweep Kingsport event, a volunteer appreciation lunch will be held at noon at Riverview Park.
