For the fifth year, the Sussex County Municipal Utilities Authority (SCMUA) in conjunction with local municipalities will take part in a plastic film and bags collection program for participating Sussex County schools.

The SCMUA and Municipal Recycling Coordinators strive to reinvigorate school recycling awareness programs, by facilitating these recycling initiatives. The Sussex County School Plastic Film Recycling Challenge - “It’s in the Bag!” is sponsored by the Trex Company, and focuses on collecting clean and dry recyclable plastic film in order to keep it out of landfills; instilling school pride.

Each participating school receives an award made of Trex materials. The Challenge started November 15, 2017, and ends on April 15, 2018, in honor of Earth Day (Earth Day). http://www.earthday.org/ Schools collect the clean and dry plastic film, reported the monthly collection amounts to Trex and delivered the plastic material to participating Trex Retailers. In Sussex County, those retailers are Stop-N-Shop in Sparta, Weiss Stores in Franklin and Newton, and Acme in Wantage and Vernon.
