Trex® Recycling Programs


A Win-Win-Win Situation

And, as an additional incentive, communities and schools that enroll in our recycling programs are eligible for high-performance, low-maintenance awards and prizes.

The plastic film recycling challenge


Every year hundreds of schools across the nation compete against each other to recycle the most plastic film. In addition to providing a better understanding and appreciation for the importance of recycling, Trex will happily donate a high-performance composite bench to the winning school, and bestow honorary awards to every school that participates.

  • The challenge begins each year on America Recycles Day, November 15, and lasts until April 15
  • Trex will provide your school with promotional materials and three recycling bins
  • A volunteer must weigh and report the collected materials every month before delivering them to one of our participating drop-off retailer locations
  • Winners are announced on Earth Day
