Cash for Trash

lunch kit accepted waste-v2-usLast year, the recycling team made over $900 for our school by shipping hard to recycle trash like drink pouches and Lunchables. A special recycling company called Terracycle pays for the shipping costs and pays us for the items we send. The recycling bins for our lunch collection are behind the bulletin board in the cafeteria. Across from the office there are bins for the other items we collect, which are tape dispensers and oral care products, including toothbrushes, floss containers, toothpaste tubes, and toothbrush and toothpaste tube outer packaging.  The recyclables can be any brand.  We are no longer accepting anything that can be recycled at home like water bottles and soda cans due to space constraints.  If you have any questions or if you would be interested in volunteering for next year’s green team, please email us at
