Homestead ECO Club Recycling

The Eco Club has begun a new recycling project that not only benefits the environment, but also rewards our school with new benches to sit and relax.  We will be collecting caps/lids to create benches for Homestead Elementary. The dates for turning in caps/lids are February 10, February 18 and March 10, 2020.  

Club members will be sorting through the caps, weighing them and boxing them to take to Green Tree Plastics in March. At that time, the plastic will be transported and bench or benches will be picked up and brought to school.

Caps/lids must be a recyclable number 2, 4, or 5. Please, make sure the lids are clean and dry before sending them.
