NexTrex® Plastic Bag & Film Recycling Programs
Looking for a project that gives back to your community and helps our planet at the click of your fingertips?  Below is information on how your garden club can participate in a plastic recycling program that benefits your club, community and repurposes plastic that was destined for the landfills! 
 
 
 
 
NexTrex® offers a COMMUNITY & UNIVERSITY RECYCLING PROGRAM!

Trex® is proud to sponsor local recycling programs in universities and communities throughout the country. If your team can collect more than 500 pounds of plastic refuse in a six-month span (about 40,500 plastic bags), we will donate a high-performance composite bench to your school or community.
