Amongst colleges, Broward College is number one for TerraCycle® collection. TerraCycle® “upcycles” items previously known as waste into new products (visit TerraCycle.com). For every item collected, TerraCycle® makes a donation to the Broward College Foundation to support the Michelle Lawless Environmental Scholarship. To date, the college has raised over $16,000.
Broward College is actively seeking individuals and local businesses to save items such as: Dairy containers (butter, cheese); chip bags, candy/energy bar wrappers; Capri-Sun juice pouches; dried pens and markers; plastic cups; personal product containers (shampoo, makeup, lotion); dental products (toothbrushes, toothpaste tubes, floss containers, mouthwash bottles); Brita® filters; old laptops, cell phones, digital cameras; ink and toner cartridges, and more. For a complete list of items, visit Trash to Treasure at Facebook.com/Trash2TreasureFL.
Items can be donated at any Broward College location or Trash to Treasure in Ft. Lauderdale. Volunteer hours are available for those who actively participate.
