Hillcrest School Recycling Oral Care Products In Bid To Win Playground

Hillcrest School

Hillcrest School students and teachers are in a competition for a new playground.

It’s a pretty safe bet the students and teachers at Hillcrest Elementary School will have good results the next time they visit their dentists.

That’s because the school is collecting used oral care products in a contest through which the school could win a new playground.

The contest is the second annual Recycled Playground Challenge, sponsored by Colgate-Palmolive, ShopRite and TerraCycle.

The school’s PTO will win one “playground credit” for every shipment of empty toothpaste tubes, toothbrushes and floss containers sent to TerraCycle, a Trenton-based recycling company, and one credit for every vote cast for the school here, before June 12, 2016, according to a press release about the competition.

The grand prize is a playground made from recycled oral care products.

The competition is open to schools in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Connecticut and Maryland that participate in the Colgate Oral Care Brigade, a free recycling program operated by Colgate and TerraCycle, according to the release.
