National Trex Recycling Challenge

‚ÄčPhoenixville Area High School is excited to announce that we are participating in the National Trex Plastic Film Recycling Challenge.

Trex utilizes millions of plastic grocery store bags each year to create its composite lumber product, keeping this material out of landfills locally and across the country.  By building a partnership with schools, students can learn the importance of recycling, keep plastic out of the landfills and be rewarded for their efforts.

Over the next 6 months, our HS students are encouraged to bring in the following items listed below.  We will weigh the plastic film weekly in order to complete against other schools across the United States.  Winners will be announce Earth Day 2019. This is an incredibly exciting program to participate in.

From December 3rd to April 5th  we are collecting the following items:

- Plastic Grocery Bags                 - Stretch Film (no household saran wrap)
- Plastic Department store bags   - Water bottle case wraps
- Newspaper sleeves                   - Bread Bag/Cereal Bag (Clean)                  
- Dry Cleaning bags
- Toilet paper/paper towel wraps (plastic around the toilet paper

By reducing, reusing, and recycling plastic bags (plastic film), you and your child can help reduce litter, prevent pollution and save natural resources. Please help by recycling your plastic bags and packaging.
