Springfield Town Library is collaborating with Springfield Rotary Club's project to remove plastic film from the waste stream. "This project empowers residents to elevate their knowledge of the volume of plastic the world generates and helps solve the plastic waste issue."
Trex, a company that makes outdoor items from recycled materials, first rolled out its recycling challenge to schools and communities in 2006. The initiative gives communities a six-month period to collect 500 pounds (or more) of plastic bags and film — also known as polyethylene films or plastic that can be stretched — and if that goal is met, the community receives an earth-friendly Trex bench, according to the company.
Springfield Rotarians have until the end of June to secure their free bench made from recycled materials.
