J.B. Watkins is excited to participate in the Trex Recycling Challenge this year. Schools compete against other schools to collect the most plastic film. While curbside recycling programs usually cannot accept grocery bags or film plastic, these items can be collected separately and taken to participating stores. Trex then collects the recycled plastic to make Earth-friendly composite decking.
To participate in the Trex School Recycling Challenge, send in the following items to school:
Please make sure all plastic is CLEAN, DRY, and FREE OF FOOD RESIDUE!
Watch this video for more details on what can and can’t be included:
The challenge officially begins on America Recycles Day, November 15, and lasts until April 15. Location boxes are located in the school lobby and near parent pick-up. In addition to providing a better understanding and appreciation for the importance of recycling, Trex will donate a high-performance composite bench to the winning school, and bestow honorary awards to every school that participates.
Thank you for your support!
