Trex Challenge- Reminders!
Region18 and The Sustainability Committee continues to collect plastic film for the Trex Challenge! Trex Collection bins are located at the main entrance of school builidings, and at both Lyme (just inside the entrance) and Old Lyme Town hall (lower level entrance at the back of the building).
As a reminder, the Trex Challenge is an opportunity to send in your plastic film with your students for a chance to win a Trex bench or other product for their school. Trex decking and railing is made from recycled plastic film and is a type of composite building material.
Some examples of items that are NOT acceptable include: compostable film (usually labeled as “compostable”), film that has any amount of food residue, candy/ice cream wrappers, cellophane-type film (think floral arrangements or holiday gift bags that make a crinkly/crunchy sound), prewashed salad mix bags, and frozen food bags (frozen berry bags).
When sending in your film from home, please remember, it must be COMPLETELY clean, COMPLETELY dry, COMPLETELY empty and COMPLETELY free from food residue. Please remove air from pillow pack bubble wrap. The diagram below says it all! If you stick to sending in items from the diagram, it will be greatly appreciated. When in doubt, throw it out; or you can email
Thanks for your continued participation in the Region 18 Trex Challenge and helping keep our planet clean!
