Candy Wrapper Collection Benefits Elmwood Park Zoo

Elmwood Park Zoo is collecting candy wrappers, chip bags and more for Terracycle.

Eating through a lot of Easter candy? Make all those candy wrappers earn money for Elmwood Park Zoo by dropping them off at the Admissions counter.

The wrappers will be sent to Terracycle, which converts waste into a "wide variety of products and materials," according to their website. Waste is upcycled or recycled to create new products.

Besides candy wrappers - including the mini wrappers - Elmwood Park Zoo is collecting stackable yogurt containers, empty toothpaste tubes; chip, pretzel, or tortilla chip bags; energy bar wrappers, juice pouches, cell phone and electronics, keyboards and computer mice and much more.

What wonderful suggestion for the zoo to make some money! Considering the County cut them way back on their funds in the past couple years. What a brainstorm!
