By collecting CAPS from household containers,
benches can be made from something that would ordinarily be thrown away.
Caps from household recycling can be made into benches for our community.
400 pounds + $200 = One Bench
This program is offered from Green Tree Plastics in Evansville to involve young
people in recycling and community
and adaptable benches and tables are made of 100% recycled plastic. These items
are made to last forever without any problems that wood products have such as
rotting, bugs, and splinters. There is no maintenance at all; the color is
incorporated into the plastic through and through.
Any plastic cap that
is clean and free of metal may be donated. Besides bottle caps, this includes
snap-on cottage cheese, coffee
can, and yogurt lids
twist-on medicine, drink, and
milk bottles, including the ring
flip-top ketchup and condiment
large twist (such as detergent)
spout (such as squirt mustard)
Volunteers will be
glad to pick up caps. Call 765-675-2336 to make

benches may be personalized as space allows. Submit your engraving proposal to
