What is TerraCycling?
How can East Amwell residents help?
East Amwell School's students are passionate about collecting trash. Certain items that we already either throw into the trash or regular recycling are collected through the Environmental Club/Mrs Ernst** and shipped off to TerraCycle. TerraCycle up-cycles these items into products and pays the school by the pound for what they receive. Each year the Environmental Club earns approximately $1,000 from TerraCycle. This money is used to to purchase supplies for the gardens around the school that the club maintains and helps fund environmental programs.
Please see the link below for an updated list of Terracycle acceptable items as collection items have changed. If you have children who attend East Amwell Elementary School, you may send these items to school with your child. Otherwise, please bring them to the Recycling Depot at the Municipal Building on the first Saturday morning of each month.
The Township and Recycling Committee are doing their part to help the students collect the eligible items at the Recycling Depot. It is very helpful if the items come sorted in bags by the categories that are shown on the list. We all use at least some of these products every single day. Please note that East Amwell ONLY collects those items on the attached list.
Do your part to keep the trash out of the landfill, and in turn, help the students of East Amwell School.
