Plastic Recycling Begins Again

The plastic recycling drive earlier this year was such a great success, we are doing it again. The recycling program offered by Trex will award the library with a  free Trex bench if they collect 500 pounds of plastic by Feb. 28, 2018. Trex benches are outdoor furniture made from recycled plastic.

To help uswith the Challenge, bring any of the following items to the library and deposit them in the receptacle found in the foyer area.

  • Grocery bags
  • Bread bags
  • Case overwrap
  • Dry cleaning bags
  • Newspaper sleeves
  • Ice bags
  • Wood pellet bags
  • Ziplock and other reclosable bags
  • Produce bags
  • Bubble wrap
  • Salt bags
  • Cereal bags

All plastic must be clean, dry and free of food residue. A collection box for the plastic has been set up in the entryway of the library. Totals are reported on a monthly basis and dropped off at Hy-Vee in Peru. The community can help the environment and the library by contributing unwanted plastic.
