Plastic Film Recycling Challenge (September Updates!)

Plastic Film Recycling Challenge (September Updates!)
July 1 – December 31.

Join the Cornwall Public Library in playing an active roll to reduce plastics in landfills and oceans. Simply bring your plastic film to the library and place it in our collection bin. Once we reach our goal of at least 500lbs, NexTrex® will turn our plastic film into a useful bench for our library grounds. Click below for a list of recyclable plastics.

All plastic must be CLEAN, DRY and FREE of FOOD RESIDUE!


SEPTEMBER UPDATE:

So far we’ve managed to collect 400lbs of the 500lbs needed to reach our goal toward a new outdoor bench – HOORAY!! That said, allow us to provide a few gentle reminders as we go forward:

  • Please make sure the plastic is CLEAN, DRY and FREE of FOOD WASTE.
  • Also, make sure the plastic is stretchy NOT crinkly (a strange, but important distinction!)
  • Finally, please cut out any stickers or labels on the plastic packaging.

Staff and volunteers go through the plastic prior to submitting it to NexTrex®, so helping us out is MUCH APPRECIATED.
