Broward College was recently selected as one of four finalists in a nationwide contest sponsored by TerraCycle. The contest challenged TerraCycle participants to design a TerraCycle waste collection station using discarded “upcycled” waste. Broward College students came up with the idea of creating a bin out of VHS tapes. BC's bin was selected as one of the 10 finalist.
Now, the public will vote on a winner over the next couple weeks, ending October 27th. Please vote so Broward College can be named the Grand Prize Winner. All proceeds will help benefit the Michelle Lawless Environmental Science Scholarship Fund.
As many of you already know, you can also drop off your TerraCycle items at Trash to Treasure. Check out the latest list here.
Want to build with VCR tapes? Trash to Treasure has plenty. We got some samples in the warehouse. Tapes and Liquid Nails is all you need.
Here are some pictures of the process.
