The Rotary Club of Westborough's Committee on the Environment will collect recyclable plastics during its eighth Trex Plastic Film Recycling Challenge, this Saturday, March 27 from 8:00 to 9:00 a.m. at Kohls retail store in Northborough. We encourage everyone to bring their plastics collection directly to Kohls at the scheduled time on Saturday.

During our March 13 drive, we collected 118 pounds of film plastics. Since we started last November, our cumulative total is 1,118 pounds of this material, which would otherwise have ended in landfillswater bodies and/or oceans. So far, we have collected more than twice our original goal of 500 pounds.
The following club members, alphabetically by last name, were present during our March 13 drive: Rohan Bettadpur, Brady Henderson, Scott Henderson, Dave Kaiser, Elliott Rittenberg, and Sean Tam. Sean, Rohan and Brady took charge of weighing and recordkeeping of the plastics. Brady also picked up the collection from the Burroughs Y.  Dave picked up the collection from the CFCU Bank location. And, Scott attended to visitors and helped unload the plastics from their vehicles.
We are very much need volunteers, to help out with the large plastics amount at the site. To volunteerclick here.
We look forward to your participation in this project!
