Krueger is excited to be part of the PepsiCo Recycle Rally!

Drop off plastic bottles and aluminum cans (non-alcoholic only please) at Krueger, 2001 Springland Avenue, Door A, anytime 7:00 am - 2:45pm (M-F).
This school year, the Recycle Rally contest ends April 28, 2020.

- Aluminum cans do not need to be crushed
2. PLASTIC #1 (PET OR PETE) BEVERAGE CONTAINERS: Most, but not all beverage containers are made of #1 PETE
Examples of types of eligible materials that are commonly made of #1 PET/PETE
- Water bottles
- Juice bottles
- Soda bottles
- Sports Drink bottles
- Ready-to-Drink Tea bottles
3. PLASTIC #2 (HDPE) BEVERAGE CONTAINERS: HDPE plastics are usually translucent or opaque and can be mistaken for other types of plastics. Be sure to check the bottom of the container and verify that it has a #2 on it.
Examples of types of eligible materials that are commonly made of #2 HDPE:
- Milk jugs

NOTES ABOUT ELIGIBLE MATERIALS:
- Labels do not need to be removed from containers
- Caps/lids may be left on plastic containers (unless otherwise specified by your local recycling service provider)
- Containers must be contaminant-free for sanitary and safety reasons
- While it is not expected that every container will be shaken completely dry, you should make sure the containers contain minimal amounts of residual fluid before tallying them. Up to 12mL of residual fluid is allowable (that is about 2% of the volume of a 20 oz. bottle or about 3% of the volume of a 12 oz. can).
