TerraCycle collecting trash today at Newtown Elementary

    TerraCycle has turned juice boxes into purses and is looking to recyle diapers.

    But today, the Trenton company is focused on collecting trash and helping a Bucks County school make money.

    Until 3 p.m. today, bring your chip bags, juice pouches, Ziploc bags, candy and cookie wrappers to Newtown Elementary. TerraCycle will collect the trash and donate 2 cents per item to the school. The next collection day is Aug. 15.
