TerraCycle at #resvt #cesuvt #vted
Hi Everyone!  We are excited to be doing TerraCycle again at RES this year.  

Not only does TerraCycle help the environment, it teaches our children to care for the earth.  

This year, some of the items we are able to collect have changed.  For example, we are no longer able to take chip bags.  Please take a moment to read the exact items we are able to send to TerraCycle.  You will now also be able to find this list on our school blog.  If you look at the top of our blog you'll see a TerraCycle tab, dedicated to TerraCycle information so that it's easier for families to locate.

We ask that you please rinse out yogurt containers, and cut the tops off of juice pouches and rinse them out also.  

Thank you for supporting TerraCycle at home and in your classrooms!  All proceeds support the local food shelf!

In classrooms and cafeteria we will collect:

Juice pouches
Granola bar wrappers
Yogurt containers
Cheese wrappers
GoGo Squeez
Elmer's glue bottles/sticks
Tape dispensers
Pens, markers, mechanical pencils
