Help us win a bench by recycling your plastics!

Help us win a Trex bench by recycling your plastics!

We want to collect over 1,000 lbs of plastic for recycling. Save all the approved plastics and drop them off at the library in the big collection containers in the lobby.

If our community can collect more than 1,000 pounds of soft film plastics and packaging in a 12-month span, we will be awarded a Trex® furniture bench.
