Recycling: committed to improving the environment in our local community.
Plastic Bags - Dedicated receptacles for collecting plastic bags in every school in Indian River County - We purchased the receptacles for the schools, and the schools take the bags to Publix Supermarkets for recycling the right way!
Commercial Film Wrap - So far, our Rotary Club has placed dedicated receptacles for commercial plastic at:
Indian River County Schools Distribution Center
The IRC Recycling District then accepts and recycles the film wrap at specific drop-off locations.
WILL YOU CONSIDER PLACING A RECEPTACLE FOR PLASTIC RECYCLING AT YOUR BUSINESS?
As an example, Ralph Lauren has a receptacle at their VB Factory Outlet Store. They collected 450 pounds of film wrap in only six weeks! The annual potential for only one business is 2 TONS of plastic!
OUR GOAL IS TO RAISE $6,000 TO PROVIDE 30 RECEPTACLES FOR AS MANY BUSINESSES AS WE CAN THROUGHOUT INDIAN RIVER COUNTY!
With 30 businesses doing their part, at least 60 tons of commercial plastic could be diverted every year from the IRC landfills. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to learn more.
