TREX Plastic Recycling Program..1784lbs of plastic recycled so far!
TREX recycle plastic into benches!
We started this program in the township with the Environmental Commission (EC) in the summer of 2018. The goal is to collect, weigh and submit 500lb !! of plastic which will then be made into a bench by TREX. Not only a great way to obtain a useful item but most importantly keeping 500lbs of plastic out of the landfill and the oceans everytime we produce a bench!!
The TREX Plastics Recycling Program
Who qualifies to apply for a bench?
Any community group in the township! You will need to supply a 2 or 3 volunteers to help manage the plastic pick up, weighing, logging and drop off until you reach your 500lb goal. If you are interested please contact our Recycling Committee TREX Coordinators:
How can East Amwell Residents help?
You'll be amazed at how much of this plastic you throw in the trash everyday! Drop it into the TREX Box at any of the mentioned locations around East Amwell and it contributes to our bench collections!
