We Need Your Plastic

Please help us recycle and earn a bench for our school! We have collected almost half of the 2,000 needed items. As a reminder, we need #2 plastics that are not see-through (no more milk jugs). Usually, coffee containers, cleaners, and detergents are made with this kind of plastic. Even the Chick-fil-A and Subway Milk containers count!!!! Keep them coming. We hate to miss out on a free bench for our school.

Awards will be given out each Friday.
