Many types of plastic caps/lids can be collected. They need to be recycle #2, 4, or 5, and need to be CLEAN. SRTs that collect, sort, and fill a copy paper box (approx. 8 pounds) will have their name entered in a random drawing for cookies to be delivered to their class at the end of the semester.   Email Mrs. Swihart at if you have questions, or stop by room 2200.
