Plastics Recycling

Let’s help our Delran Intermediate School with the TREX school challenge. Save your plastic and drop off at DIS between 8am and 3pm. They are trying to beat other sleeves, cereal bags, air packing pillows (pop them first), produce wrap, and overwrap on bottled water, soda, paper towels, toilet paper. Make sure it’s clean and dry. If you’re not sure, throw in the trash. If you can’t get the bags to the school, send an email and we’ll make arrangements.
