UNION, NJ – The Township of Union is holding a Bash the Trash contest for innovative ways to upcycle and recycle things around the house.

Residents are asked to send a photo or video of a do-it-yourself project with materials that can be found around the house or at a local hardware store.

Entries will be judged on how easily the project can be duplicated, accessibility of materials, innovation and how well it upcycles and recycles materials.

Submit entries to www.uniontownship.com by July 27.  Four winners will be chosen and will be featured in the Township’s summer web series.
