Just a quick reminder that TerraCycle Tuesday is September 23rd during morning carpool.
Download our Cheat Sheet (updated 9/19/14) summary page which can be accessed via our TerraCycle website olivechapelterracycles.weebly.com for a list of all items that can be recycled at OCE.
Please remember that Instant Oatmeal Envelopes (Hot Cereal Brigade) are no longer being collected as TerraCycle has closed this brigade. The Dairy Tub and Cheese Packaging Brigades will also be closing October 31st. The last day to collect dairy/cheese items will be October 21st.
Also just a quick reminder that we do not accept milk cartons, cardboard, plastic bottles or Styrofoam. TerraCycle recycling is very specific.
When in doubt, throw it out! If you're holding something and you're wondering if it can or can't be recycled such as your coffee cup with plastic lid, or a candy wrapper or straw or plastic cap -- and there isn't enough information on the recycling bin to say that those are acceptable, than throw them in the trash. This holds true for recycling everywhere, not just at OCE.
Thank you for your support! Our total earnings have now exceeded $2640 and 1400 pounds of garbage have been saved from the landfill.
We hope you get as excited as we are about turning trash into cash!!

Important Updates to TerraCycle Program at OCE: Closing Notice for the Cheese Packaging Brigade and the Dairy Tub Brigade.
Dear Olive Chapel Elementary School Families,
Thank you for your participation in the Cheese Packaging Brigade® and the Dairy Tub Brigade®. TerraCycle has recycled over 1.6 million pieces of cheese packaging and 3 million pieces of dairy tub packaging since the programs launched, which is a very impressive accomplishment we helped them achieve.
I regret to inform you that these Brigades will be closing on October 31, 2014. TerraCycle is working on identifying other brand partners for this Brigade program in the near future so that they may continue to offer a free national recycling program for this waste stream.
In preparation for these closings, please send in any cheese packaging or dairy tub packaging by October 21st. We will need a week or so for our last shipments to arrive at the TerraCycle facility. TerraCycle will be unable to credit our account for any packaging checked in after October 31, 2014.
