Terracycle Information

For over 6 years the Richmond Elementary School has been collecting Terracycle items in their classrooms.
Terracycle is an upcycle program where, what would be waste, is turned into other items such as plastic recycling bins, tote bags, clipboards, etc. Check out their website to learn more: www.terracycle.com.

As a community, we have raised over $1,316 and saved over 79,839 pieces of trash from the landfill. All proceeds support our Richmond Food Shelf, another win-win!
