Bottle Caps to Benches

Our trails need some new benches and what better way to provide them than to RECYCLE!?  We’ll be collecting caps for the ABC Promise Partnership to turn plastic bottle caps into new benches.  

How can you help?  

*Collect and sort caps according to their guidelines

*Bring caps to TWC.  We have a collection bin in the lobby of our Interpretive Building.

Want to get your school, class, club, or group involved?  Let’s make this a competition!  Be the group to bring us the most caps and everyone in your group will have a bench named and engraved in your honor and everyone in your group will receive a TWC magnet!  To register your group to be part of the competition, email twc@wildernesscenter.org.

    How long will you be collecting bottle caps? I have a lot I would like to donate. We were saving them for someone that donated them for another project and unfortunately she passed away so we a lot of caps. I would like to donate to your project. I like to recycle. I am just about 1 1/2 away so not sure when I could get there.

      Hi Stacey, We will be continuing this project for the foreseeable future since we are always needing to replace benches. Please email TWC@WildernesCenter.org for more information. Depending on where you live, there may be a closer drop-off location. Thanks!

    Hello, I am in Lexington, KY and my workplace has been saving plastic bottle caps for an animal shelter and they have told us that are no longer in need of bottle caps. May we share the caps with you and ship them to you? If so, where do I send them? Thank you, Connie Murrie

      Hi Connie, yes we can probably take them! Please email TWC@WildernessCenter.org. Joyce is handling the program and will be able to help you!
