Trex Corporation is described as the world’s largest manufacturer of wood-alternative decking products crafted with environmental responsibility.

And the Warwick Lions Club has been involved with Trex for about two years.

The club collects recycled plastic items for Trex and when it collects 500 lbs. in a six-month period it receives an attractive and environmentally responsible composite outdoor bench.

During that time the Warwick Lions Club donated one bench to the Community Center and two to the Village of Warwick.

And on Monday, Sept. 14, they donated the third and newest bench to the Town of Warwick Historical Society, which had reported that Lewis Park needed some additional seating areas.

The Warwick Lions Club asks residents to recycle their clean, dry, empty plastic bags and film packaging in 30 gallon (or 45 gallon) clear plastic recycle bags. Each 30 gallon filed bag is 8 lbs.

Take the bag to the loading dock behind the right side of Price Chopper on Route 94 and then contact George McManus with the total that you dropped off at mcmanus@warwick.net or by calling 986-1681 and leaving a message.

The donation will go toward the 500 lbs. that can be used to receive another bench from Trex.
