Beech Grove Recycling Program

Beech Grove partners with various organizations, to collect plastic bags and film-type plastics that are recycled to make benches. We have targeted drives to collect 500 lbs of plastic to create a bench. However, we also welcome any donations throughout the year even when we are not actively in a targeted drive to help us get a jumpstart.

Our most recent successful collection secured a bench for Western Branch Intermediate School to assist in the establishment of an outdoor classroom area. We are already in progress for our next bench. Your plastics bring our success.

See below for more information to help you know the types of plastics and films we collect as well as information from the recycling program to learn more.
