The Sandwich Recycling Project team recently installed a sitting bench made
of recycled single-use plastic films at the Sandwich Post Office. Thanks go out
to Sandwich residents who drop off soft plastics, such as grocery bags and bubble wrap, at the 'Trex' box at the town transfer station. Trex, a manufacturer of composite building materials and furniture, operates recycling programs that
award a bench for every 500 lbs. of soft plastics collected. This bench was awarded for last year's collection; another bench will be coming soon for the plastic we've already collected in 2022.
Thanks also to Jim Humphrey, who collects and sorts the plastic, Mark Longley, who takes the materials to the Gilford Hannaford for processing, and Kevin White, who facilitates the program at the transfer station.
Recycling soft film keeps them out of landfills - but let's also reduce our use of
single-use plastics in the first place. For example, use paper rather than bubble-wrap for packaging, fill reusable bottles with tap water for drinking, and bring reusable totes to the grocery store. For more information about this program and the Sandwich Recycling Project, contact Peggy Longley at 603-284-6294.
