Girl Scout troops present recycled bench to Illinois Veterans Home


Two local Girl Scout troops joined forces to collect 1,000 pounds of bottle caps.

The St. Francis Solanus and QJHS troops sent those caps to Green Tree Plastics to be recycled into benches.

The scouts presented those benches to the Illinois Veterans Home in Quincy Thursday evening.

"It took about 800 pounds of bottle caps but we collected 1000 pounds so if they rejected any, we had extras," Girl Scout Adayre Klauser said.

Green Tree Plastics manufactures recycled plastic products using 100% recycled plastics and no hazardous chemicals.
