40 Bales of plastic bags and wrap were recycled fall semester

Plastic bags and wrap that was collected during move in and the fall semester from the res halls was baled into 40 bales. These bales will be processed  to a local Wisconsin company, Trek,  that makes planks for decks and park benches from the recycled plastic. We will continue to collect plastic bags and wrap in the white cardboard boxes in the lobbies of the res halls during the rest of the year. Bring retail shopping bags, packaging pillows, case wrap from snacks and beverage case, bread bags, sandwich bags and other stretchy plastic wrap to the white cardboard bins in the lobby of your hall.
