WOOD-RIDGE, NJ -- After successfully completing the PepsiCo. summer recycling contest and raising $500 for The Catherine E. Doyle School, the Wood-Ridge Public Education Foundation is kicking off the 2017-18 school year by launching another green promotion with TerraCycle, a New Jersey-based recycling company that the foundation has partnered with for several years.

The Foundation's fall recycling program focuses on Entenmann's Little Bites packages. This is something the community is familiar with, as the foundation has recycled 13,835 individual units over the past 2 years. Students and families can recycle their empty packages at the Catherine E. Doyle School and the Wood-Ridge Intermediate School.  The contest ends on October 31. First place will be rewarded 50,000 points to their account.  

TerraCycle offers a range of free programs that are funded by conscientious companies that reward nonprofits and schools for their recycling efforts with points that can be exchanged for cash donations twice a year, in December and June.

TerraCycle was founded in 2001 by Tom Szaky, then a student at Princeton University, on a mission towards eliminating the Idea of Waste®. From these humble beginnings, TerraCycle has grown into the global leader in collecting and repurposing hard-to-recycle waste operating in over 20 countries, engaging over 60 million people, and recycling billions of pieces of waste through various innovative platforms.
