SustainFloyd is collecting recyclables at the Floyd Farmers Market from 9:30 am to 11:30 am on the following Saturdays in Fall 2021:
OCTOBER 2 • OCTOBER 30 • NOVEMBER 20
We will be set up at the Farmers Market Extension at the Village Green, right behind the Farmers Market Pavilion. There is easy parking at the Village Green. We will be collecting the following:
- #5 Plastic (ex. yogurt pots)
- Plastic Film (ex: single use shopping and produce bags, overwraps, ziplocks)
- Small alkaline batteries
- Printer ink cartridges
- All brands of razors, blades and packaging
- All packaging from Burt’s Bees
- All packaging from Tom’s of Maine
IT IS REALLY IMPORTANT THAT YOU MAKE SURE ALL ITEMS ARE CLEAN AND DRY. WE WILL BE STORING THEM UNTIL WE HAVE SUFFICIENT TO SHIP.
Our plan is to send the #5 plastic and plastic film directly to US manufacturers to be directly reincorporated into new products (Preserve and TREX). Other items will be sent to Terra Cycle, a multinational recycling group who work directly with manufactures. For example Tom’s Toothpaste will take back all their packaging through the Terra Cycle program. Any individual can join Terra Cylce and start sending their own items in directly. We simply offer this service to give one more, perhaps easier, way to participate in recycling.
