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 service.

Beautiful, colorful 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 (for example):

  • snap-on cottage cheese, coffee can, and yogurt lids

  • twist-on medicine, drink, and milk bottles, including the ring

  • flip-top ketchup and condiment bottles

  • large twist (such as detergent)

  • spout (such as squirt mustard)
     


Pick-up Service

Volunteers will be glad to pick up caps. Call 765-675-2336 to make arrangements.

Financial Contributions

In addition to recycling plastic caps, donors are urged to make a contribution to the cost of the new benches. The Tipton County Foundation has been asked to receive and process these donations, which can be tax-deductible to individuals and businesses if names and addresses are provided. Organizations may also want to send in the proceeds of a collection or event they have conducted to support the bench project.

Make checks payable to "TCF" and put "Bench Project" on the memo line. Mail to PO Box 412, Tipton 46072.

Donors may use a credit card to make a safe transaction on-line. Be sure to identify the bench project as the beneficiary of your gift.

Please be sure to give the Foundation ample time and opportunity to review and approve any promotional and printed material in connection with a fundraiser that refers to our role in the Fund.


 

The top board of the benches may be personalized as space allows. Submit your engraving proposal to the Park Board for consideration.
