Bags to Benches
It’s about as simple as it sounds. We help turn recycled plastic bags into benches.
ESD has teamed up with Trex, the country’s largest manufacturer of wood-alternative decking and railing products, to host this plastic bag recycling challenge. There are 7 drop off sites located throughout the city. Please be sure to “bag your bags” when you drop them off.
