***Until further notice we cannot accept any plastic***
The locations where we make the bulk drop offs of the plastic once it is sorted/weighed is not accepting anything until further notice. We will resume taking plastic at the monthly depot once we can make the bulk drop offs again.
We receive MANY items that are NOT accepted by TREX. This results in volunteers spending MANY HOURS sorting through the collections.
SIMPLE RULE OF THUMB :–
If it STRETCHES - ACCEPTED!
If it CRINKLES - NOT ACCEPTED!
Here are the Top 6 items we receive that are NOT accepted by TREX and should GO IN THE TRASH:
Plastic meat casing/packaging
Clear basket/gift wrap
Pet food bags/packaging
Feminine product packaging
“Non stretchy” food/snack packaging
Please Note the following:
Plastic must be CLEAN
Chip bags are Terracycle not TREX. Please bring to monthly depot ONLY.
