  • Help Clays Mill Students Collect Bottle Caps For Benches

    • Our students will be collecting bottle caps and lids that would normally go into the landfill and sending them to a company that will turn them into benches and picnic tables.
    • The students will be responsible for sorting and weighing the caps and lids to prepare them for the trip to the recycling facility.
    • Drop off containers are located in the cafeteria and at the top of both stairwells.
    • See the second page for types of lids and caps we can collect. Please rinse any food or product off the lids otherwise the company will not accept them. 

    Thanks in advance for your help!
