CALVARY IS AGAIN COLLECTING PLASTIC BAGS TO RECYCLE INTO BENCHES
Thank you to the volunteers who stepped forward. Calvary Presbyterian Church is able again to accept your plastic bags for recycling into composite benches. For every 500 pounds of plastic bags you put in the recycling boxes, one bench is produced and given to a local non-profit.
As a reminder, we can recycle all clean, dry and free-of-food residue bags including grocery bags, bread bags, bubble wrap, dry cleaning bags, newspaper sleeves, ice bags, plastic shipping envelopes, reclosable food storage bags, cereal bags, case overwrap, slat bags, pallet wrap and stretch film, wood pellet bags and produce bags. Watch the website for updates on our progress toward 500 pounds of recycling.
Through the recycling efforts of volunteers from Calvary Presbyterian Church, a plastic bench was secured from the Trex Company. It was donated to the Alice Paul House for their use.

Thank you for helping us to care for our environment in this important way.
