The Summit Area GreenFaith Circle is collecting clean plastic bags and plastic film products to support the recycling of plastic into lumber by Trex (www.trex.com),. Each 500 lb. donation will be awarded with a bench made of recycled plastic.
The collection bin for donations is currently at the United Methodist Church at 17 Kent Place Blvd in Summit. It is just outside the office so donations can be made any time, day or night. When the 500-lb target is reached, the bin will be moved to another participating house of worship to collect another 500 lbs.
Please help reduce plastic pollution by donating to this effort.
