Please rinse and sort your plastics into the following categories before the event:

  • Plastic bags
  • Plant containers and trays (please knock dirt out ahead of time)
  • Please rinse and separate plastics with numbers by each number separately (no styrofoam food trays even if they have a number).
  • Miscellaneous plastics without numbers (Bottle caps, drink lids, DVD’s, CD’s, CD cases, straws, lawn/patio furniture, kids\’ toys (think slides!), pet igloos, laundry baskets, kiddy pools, & more. . .bring it, we’ll try to take it)
  • Reusable Plastic Items—We especially love buckets!  Be sure and drop by this section to see if you might find a useful item you would like to bring home.
