" The City of Port St Lucie is working with three local schools on a recycling project: Morningside Elementary, Oak Hammock K-8 and West Gate K-8.
Each school needs to collect 200 pounds of caps to create one bench for their campus. Once collected, Keep Port St. Lucie Beautiful will send the caps to Green Tree Plastics, based in Evansville, IN, which has created a program designed to fabricate the benches to help educate students about recycling.
Residents can help by dropping off clean collected caps to:
• City Hall Lobby, 121 SW Port St. Lucie Blvd., Port St Lucie
• PSL Civic Center - Recreation area, 9221 SE Civic Center Place, Port St Lucie
• PSL Community Center, 2195 SE Airoso Blvd., Port St Lucie
