RECYCLE YOUR PLASTIC BAGS

  

 
 

We are collecting plastic film to be recycled

and made into Trex outdoor furniture. 

 

Please bring or send in your CLEAN

plastic bags and plastic film

throughout the school year

 

 A quick test to know the difference between recyclable

and non recyclable plastic:

stick your thumb through the plastic.

If it stretches, recycle it (zip locks and amazon packing)!

If it doesn’t stretch, it’s trash (grape bags, TJs frozen food).

 

Students can bring it down to the collection box by the front office

or you can bring it in and we’ll get it to the box. 

 

The school which collects the most in our region receives

an outdoor bench, but we are really hoping to beat out our friends

at Mill Hill, Dwight, and other Fairfield elementary schools!

 

 Reach out to Emma Kaye, emmajwebber@gmail.com 

with any questions
