Recycling for Wildlife!

 

Terracycle is a company that brings solutions for hard-to-recycle items. 

 Check below for items that can be collected. These items will be shipped to Terracycle and generate points that translate into donations to Southern Plains Land Trust.

 Items can be dropped off in Boulder (you may use the mail slot at the front door for night drops):

Southern Plains Land Trust will also be collecting items during their events.  If you have a bunch of items collected, private pickup could be possible.  Get your family, friends, and neighbors involved to make a difference for the environment and SPLT.
