Upcycle It! Totals (updated September 2019):
$15,992.90 raised for Westford schools!
1,000,788 pieces equaling 10,144 lbs. of trash saved from the waste stream!
After 10 years and over 11,000 lbs of waste diverted from the waste stream, our Upcycle It! program will be ending on July 31.
Unfortunately, many of the items we collected over the years, were discontinued due to corporate sponsors withdrawing their support for the programs. At this point, very few items that we see worth Upcycling are still collected by Terracycle for free.
Thank you all for your enthusiasm and support over the years. We have collectively raised over $16,000 and kept over 1 Million pieces of waste out of the waste stream! Quite the accomplishment!
Please keep reducing, reusing, recycling and upcycling!
