Albany elementary among top in recycling challenge
Placeholder Image
ALBANY - Albany Elementary School is among the top state collectors of cereal bags in the MOM Brands Cereal Bag Brigade, a free, national recycling program created by a partnership between MOM Brands and TerraCycle.

By collecting waste from its MOM Brands cereal packaging, the school has helped to divert 2,004 units of cereal bag waste from landfills.

After they sign up to join a recycling program, schools earn points for every unit of waste they collect and send to TerraCycle. The points can be redeemed for charitable gifts or a cash donation to the non-profit or school of the collector's choice. TerraCycle recycles the traditionally non-recyclable cereal bag waste into new products and materials.
