TREX Plastic Recycling Program..1370+lbs 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 is keeping 500lbs of plastic out of the landfill and the oceans!!

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:
