Elmer's Glue Crew Recycling Program

I just learned of another recycling program that recycles specific items (like the
wine cork recycling program I wrote about last week). This time it's glue bottles and empty glue sticks. 

Elmer's is sponsoring a program where schools can collect the empty bottles and sticks and drop them off at the nearest Wal-mart store beginning Earth Day, April 22. There is also a chance for school's to win prizes. 

Sounds like a good program. I e-mailed the details to my son's teacher who runs an environmental club after school for the kids.

One thing that bothered me at first is that the instructions say to collect Elmer's products specifically.  But after digging down on the website a bit, it does say that they will accept bottles and sticks from other manufacturers. They just can't guarantee they will end up being recycled because they may not be made of the specific kind of plastic their program covers. Okay, I'll accept that.

Click here to go to the Elmer's website. Please think about alerting your school to this program.
