MONTICELLO, NY — Monticello High School Environmental Science is competing to win a playground made from recycled oral-care waste through the fourth annual Recycled Playground Challenge, courtesy of Colgate-Palmolive, ShopRite and the recycling company TerraCycle.
The class will earn one “playground credit” for each unit (defined as .02 pounds of used, post-consumer oral care products and packaging such as empty toothpaste tubes and floss containers) sent to TerraCycle for recycling. An additional credit is earned for every online vote cast for the school at www.terracycle.com/colgateshopriteplayground2017 before June 30. The grand-prize playground will be made from recycled oral care waste collected through the Colgate® Oral Care Recycling Program, a free, national program operated by Colgate and TerraCycle.
