Cap collection yields benches for Springfield Schools
What began a year ago as a recycling project for the Girl Scout district has led to the delivery of several benches for Springfield Local Schools.
Maria Kurz said Troop 10106, of which her daughter Abby is a member, participated in a cap collection as a way to learn about recycling.
The scouts had planned to take part in a program offered by Green Tree Plastics ABC Partnership of Evansville, Indiana, which offers A Bench for Caps (ABC) program. It teaches the importance of caring for the earth and green living.
Organizations that participate in the program collect, sort, clean and weigh caps and lids, removing unacceptable plastics, explained Mrs. Kurz.
