The Community Park Elementary School TerraCycle Project

As of May 27th, 201
CP has earned $1,234.30 for our gardens
Welcome!  ¡Bienvenidos!

Here at Community Park we collect trash that is not traditionally recycled and separate them into bins that we have set up throughout our school.  We box up this trash and send it to TerraCycle.  In turn, TerraCycle pays us $0.02 for each piece of trash. 100% of the money that we earn goes into an account that funds our school’s gardens.  The idea that is central to this process is that students can take something bad, trash, and with a bit of effort turn it into something very, very good.

Here is a list of what we collect:
