FRANKLIN TOWNSHIP, NJ - Want to help Hillcrest Elementary School win a new playground and help keep the town green at the same time?

From today until June 30, you have a chance to do both by participating in a contest run by TerraCycle, and sponsored by Colgate and ShopRite. 

TerraCycle is an international upcycling (to reuse discarded objects or materials) and recycling company that takes difficult to recycle packaging and turns it into affordable, innovative products.

To help click the link below and vote for Hillcrest Elementary PTO Somerset, NJ.

Students and school staff will recycle waste that would usually be thrown away, such as potato chip bags, candy wrappers, cereal bags, beauty product containers, and other clean trash.

At the end of the year, the collected waste is sent to TerraCycle and they send back a check. Empty toothpaste tubes, boxes, old toothbrushes, and empty dental floss containers can be sent to the school.

Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received.

So the community is encouraged to share the link above or the flyer below to help spread the word.

Last year Hillcrest Students won toothbrushes and toothpaste of each student.
