TREX Recycling Challenge

The middle school will once again be participating in the Trex Recycling Challenge. Acceptable plastics can be dropped off at any retail store that collects plastic bags. Franklin Library also has a drop bin. Most stores prefer frequent trips with smaller drops rather than one large drop. Once you've dropped your recycling, please e-mail TScognamiglio@htps.org with the approximate number of pounds. Thank you for doing your part to help the world! See attached flyer!
