Plastic Collection: Transforming Plastic Bags into a Bench & Bottle Caps and Lids into Art!

We are also continuing our collection of plastic bags (only clean, soft plastic) so we can get our free Recycled Plastic Bag Bench from Trex. And also we are also collecting bottle caps and lids to be reimagined into art. 

Pop top collections for Ronald McDonald house: 

Little things like pop tabs can make a big difference! Help support families and children through our Pop Tab program by collecting and donating the aluminum tabs you pull to open soda, soup, and other cans.

There is a collection bin on the table near entrance to the temple’s preschool.





Used Sneaker Collection: 

The temple has paired with Got Sneakers, a sneaker recycling organization. Donate any sneakers you aren’t using; Got Sneakers will either recycle them or redistribute them to secondhand markets, depending on what shape they are in. More info on the Earth Day page.
