Craig School Wraps Up TREX Recycling Program for This Year

For the fourth straight year, both CHS and CLS-CMS have been collecting plastic as part of the TREX nationwide PLASTIC and WRAPS recycling program.  After 6 months of collecting bubble wrap, grocery bags, newspaper sleeves and cleaning out those kitchen drawers where you just naturally shove all of the plastic bags, we are proud to share that as a school community, we collected and recycled over 60 lbs of plastic that otherwise would have ended up in landfill and taken hundreds of years to decompose!  Instead, our plastic recycling was turned into composite decking which is made of 95% recycled wood and plastic.  

And although our school did not place in the school competition, we did join over 1000 other schools from around the country and brought greater awareness to our students on how we can be an active participant in protecting and preserving our planet.  In the fall, TREX will be honoring us with a special bird feeder made up of the plastic that we recycled!  For those that would plan on continuing to recycle the various plastic bags, check with your local supermarkets like ACME, many of which provide a special container on site to drop off your plastics.
