Wilder Elementary students collected over 60,000 plastic bags for recycling.

A huge congratulations to all of the Laura Ingalls Wilder Wolves who contributed to the plastic bag recycling competition. Wilder, an elementary school in Pearland, broke their previous record with a whopping 60,000+ plastic bags! On May 3 representatives from HEB Plus! Pearland and Keep Pearland Beautiful picked up the plastic bags that were packed into 55-gallon garbage bags.

Plastic bags and other plastic films are recyclable but not in your recycling cart or at the recycling center. This category of plastics includes shopping bags, dry cleaner bags and the plastic film that wraps your paper products like toilet paper and paper towels. Just stuff them all in one bag and drop off at a local retailer like Walmart, HEB or Krogers.

First place will be receiving the movie and snack party at the end-of-the-year, sponsored by HEB Plus!

Keep Pearland Beautiful commends the entire school for such an amazing feat! To find out how your school can participate next year call 281-489-2795 or visit www.mykpb.org and help us keep Pearland beautiful!
