The Committee on the Environment of the Rotary Club of Westborough will collect recyclable plastics during its sixth Trex Plastics Challenge collection, on Saturday, January 16 from 9:00 to 10:00 a.m. at Kohls' retail store in Northborough.
 
 
We are very appreciative of community members since a majority of the plastics collected were brought directly on-site at Kohls' in order to minimize the handling by our volunteers. Our total collection is now 340 pounds toward the goal of 500 pounds by this May 5.  If we are successful, Trex Co.which manufactures a wide array of composite plastic products, will gift us a park bench as a reward.
 
A big thanks to Shellby Marshall for interviewing club members Heather Abraham and Sharad Mehta about the Trex challenge for the "Frank & Mary Show" at Westborough TV. To watch the 28-minute interviewclick here.
 
Thank you everyone for spreading the word and making the plastics-collection events successful. We need more volunteers to participate in future events at Kohls' and help out with the large amounts of plastics being collected. This will help us sustain the program going forward.
