Recycling Top Tips of the Month!

IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING 

>>>TREX PLASTIC PROGRAM<<<<

***Until further notice we cannot accept any plastic***

The locations where we make the bulk drop offs of the plastic once it is sorted/weighed is not accepting anything until further notice. We will resume taking plastic at the monthly depot once we can make the bulk drop offs again.


We receive MANY items that are NOT accepted by TREX. This results in volunteers spending MANY HOURS sorting through the collections. 


SIMPLE RULE OF THUMB :–

  • If it STRETCHES - ACCEPTED!
  • If it CRINKLES - NOT ACCEPTED!

Here are the Top 6 items we receive that are NOT accepted by TREX and should GO IN THE TRASH:

  • Plastic meat casing/packaging
  • Clear basket/gift wrap
  • Pet food bags/packaging
  • Cheese wrappers
  • Feminine product packaging
  • “Non stretchy” food/snack packaging

Please Note the following:

  • Plastic must be CLEAN
  • Chip bags are Terracycle not TREX. Please bring to monthly depot ONLY.
  • ⇩ALL paper labels must be removed⇩ (cut out) of all plastic mailing envelopes/pouches before sending in for TREX
