Hopewell Elementary School will be partnering with Mercer County Park on its hard-to-recycle project. The program, promoted by Mercer County Parks was reported by MercerMe last week here: https://mercerme.com/have-hard-to-recycle-items-mercer-county-park-can-help/

According to Helen Corveleyn, a teacher at HES, in addition to County drop-off sites mentioned in last week’s article, drop-off for the TREX program will be available for the public in the front entrance vestibule at HES in a green and brown box labeled “TREX.”

Corveleyn explained that the following items can be recycled through Trex: produce bags, store bags, ice Bags, Ziploc and other reclosable bags, clean cereal bags, case overwrap, bread bags, newspaper sleeves, dry-cleaning bags, bubble wrap and plastic e-commerce mailers.  

The plastic contributed to HES will be added to Mercer County Park’s collections to contribute to the Trex Bench competition, Corveleyn stated. The Trex program is scheduled to run until May 1, 2020.

Amie Rukenstein
Amie Rukenstein is a very curious and enthusiastic resident of Hopewell Township who can never let a question go unanswered. Amie lives in Titusville with her husband, Ron, and numerous pets. She vastly enjoys frequent visits from her college-age children and their friends. In most aspects of her life, including with her new role at MercerMe, Amie is an organizer. With a full-time job and as a member of several non-profit organizations, she finds herself most often with her laptop open and excel and google on the screen. She does, however, leave the computer as often as possible to hike in Washington Crossing Park. Amie and Ron recently purchased what appears to be the oldest structure in Titusville. Known as The Titus Store at the corner of Church and River Drive and abandoned for 20 years, they look forward to restoring the building to its former glory.
