Waterloo Green School Recycling Challenge

Mon, 09/25/2017 - 11:13am

Waterloo and Trex, the manufacturer of composite deck materials, are cooperating in a Green School Recycling Challenge.  It is the Trex Plastic Film Recycling Challenge beginning on America Recycles Day, Nov. 15th!  Trex utilizes millions of plastic grocery store bags each year to create its composite lumber product, keeping this material out of landfills locally and across the country.  By building a partnership with schools students can learn the importance of recycling, keep plastic out of the landfills and be rewarded for their efforts. Items that are recycled in this program will be:

  • plastic grocery bags
  • stretch film (no household saran wrap)
  • plastic department store bags                           
  • water bottle case wrap  
  • newspaper sleeves                                 
  • toilet paper/paper towel over wrap             
  • dry-cleaning bags                                               
  • bread bag / cereal bags

By reducing, reusing, and recycling plastic bags, you and your child can help reduce litter, prevent pollution and save natural resources. Please help by recycling your plastic bags and packaging.  Start saving your plastic now and look for collection bins around Waterloo coming soon!   Contact Mrs. Weeks for any information.
