Hillcrest Elementary School is competing to win a playground made from recycled oral care waste through the fourth annual Recycled Playground Challenge, courtesy of Colgate-Palmolive, ShopRite, and recycling company TerraCycle.

Hillcrest Elementary School will earn one ‘Playground Credit’ for each unit of oral care waste, such as empty toothpaste tubes and floss containers, sent to TerraCycle for recycling, according to a press release about the program.

An additional credit is earned for every online vote cast for the school at www.terracycle.com/colgateshopriteplayground2017 before June 30. The grand prize playground will be made from recycled oral care waste collected through the Colgate Oral Care Recycling Program, a free, national program operated by Colgate and TerraCycle.

This year’s Recycled Playground Challenge launched March 12, 2017 among schools throughout New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Connecticut and Maryland that participate in the Colgate Oral Care Recycling Program.

The Colgate Oral Care Recycling Program is an ongoing activity, open to any individual, family, school or community group. For each piece of waste sent in using a pre-paid shipping label, participants earn money toward donations to the school or charity of their choice.
