Due to an unforeseen backlog at the TerraCycle center, we discovered that we can no longer collect and ship our foil-lined snack bags for recycling. Disappointing as this is, we are instead shifting our focus to two new initiatives: recycling plastic films and batteries. We will be repurposing our TerraCycle bins for these items. Many thanks to Liz and Keri, who have spearheaded this effort and are volunteering their time and energy to transport these new recyclables to drop-off points!
Liz created the following slides, which have been shared throughout the school, to clarify which plastics can and cannot be recycled. There are more recyclables, and more drop-off locations, than you might expect!
