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.
