Empowering communities, one lid at a time.
Any piece of plastic smaller than a credit card can't be recycled and has to go to landfill. Passionate local, Tim Miller, has championed an initiative to combat this. The grass-roots volunteer project, Lids4Kids is committed to rescuing plastic bottle lids from going to landfill to protect our environment and benefit kids through community projects.
Drop off your washed collection of lids at our reception! We drop them off to the Ecological Justice Hub so that the Jesuit Social Services can use their fantastic machinery to repurpose the plastic.
