Recycle our trays!


From 1976 to 2004, Friendship Trays used aluminum trays, and we collected washed-out trays for recycling for many years.

Conversion to Oliver paper trays brought many benefits, but initially we were unable to afford a recyclable tray -- although the paper was biodegradable.

But recent price increases for paper trays prompted a switch to the black plastic tray shown at right. Food looks better in the black tray. And the plastic is recyclable!

So recipieints: Help us go green by washing out trays and dropping them in your recycling bin.

And volunteers: Tell the recipients you serve about how they may recycle their trays and help Friendship Trays go green!
