Beautiful, colorful and adaptable benches are made of 100% recycled plastic. These items are made to last forever without any problems that wood products have, such as rotting, bugs, and splinters. There is no maintenance at all; the color is incorporated into the plastic through and through.
Any plastic cap that is clean and free of metal may be donated. Besides bottle caps, this includes (for example):
Recycling Office at 814 Development Dr.
Tipton County Public

In addition to recycling plastic caps, donors are urged to make a contribution to the cost of the new benches. The Tipton County Foundation has been asked to receive and process these donations, which can be tax-deductible to individuals and businesses if names and addresses are provided.
Organizations may also want to send in the proceeds of a collection or event they have conducted to support the bench project. Please be sure to give the Foundation ample time and opportunity to review and approve any promotional and printed material in connection with a fundraiser that refers to our role in the Fund.
Donors may use a credit card to make a safe transaction on-line. Be sure to identify the bench project as the beneficiary of your gift.
The top board of the benches may be personalized as space allows. Submit your engraving proposal to the Waste Management & Recycling Department for consideration.
Don't just recycle the caps. Participate in your local recycling programs for all materials.
