As explained in the May YCN, Peninsula is now a Main Street Community. As a part of this program, an important element is Design and this involves creating a sense of place, way finding, and how the community looks and feels. With the help of all area residents, we want to get involved in a program that provides free benches to be placed around designated areas for more seating. This program is called Nex-Trex and is a plastic recycling program. We are challenged with coming up with 500 pounds of plastic material over a 6 month collection period. Here is where your help is critical. Items to be recycled include grocery bags, bread bags, bubble wrap, dry cleaning bags, newspaper sleeves, ice bags, plastic shipping envelopes, Ziploc bags, cereal bags, pallet wrap and stretch film, wooden pallet bags, and produce bags. All plastic needs to be clean and does not include water bottles. The Main Street Committee thought this is a very doable community project and so we are requesting your help. At this point we are waiting on the Collection Bins which will be placed at Terry Lumber, The Peninsula Road Garage next to Terry Lumber, and the former DMT Garage on the corner of Locust and Main Street. In the meantime, if households could starting collecting the materials above now, that would be wonderful. We will get the word out when the bins are in place.

A special thanks to the North Hampton Rotary for already donating 500 pounds of recyclable materials for a bench. Please help us get the next 500 pounds because you can get 2 benches a year.

Thanks so much for your help.
