Help Create an EPIC Day of Service

County-wide plastic film recycling

The Rotary Club of Summit Count has an on-going weekly plastic film recycling project in association with Trex, which uses the film in their product, and we have up-cycled over 12,000 pounds of plastic film over 2 years. We will extend this pick-up to the entire county for our Epic Day of Service. We will work with the Breckenridge Club. Volunteers will visit local businesses several weeks prior to the day of service to ask them to save clean plastic film and we will pick it up, clean it and weigh it on the day of service. We have arranged to drive the plastic to a Trex pick up point in Denver where it will be put on a truck and sent to Trex. We need volunteers to canvass the local businesses 2-3 weeks prior to the Day of service and need teams to pick up plastic, transport it to the high school, clean and weigh it and load it into the truck.
