BLANKETS TO BOARDS™
At Heatsheets, we are committed to the environment in spirit and in practice. In February 2011 we launched Blankets to Boards™, an innovative recycling partnership with Trex Company – the nation’s largest manufacturer of wood-alternative decking and railing products. This incredible, free program allows events of any size to recycle and re-purpose their Heatsheets heat-reflective finish line blankets for transformation into Trex’s wood-alternative outdoor living products. This means Heatsheets are both made and recycled in the U.S.
Getting Started Is Easy!
Heatsheets and Trex will coordinate a drop off point for you at a local Trex-affiliated retailer or grocery store. The drop-off is scheduled at your convenience, either late in the afternoon on race day, or the following day. (Drop off typically less than 3 miles from finish line).
Your Green Team will collect discarded Heatsheets blankets in clear plastic collection bags at baggage/gear recovery and/or other post-finish areas.
At the scheduled time, your DPW or a trash hauler will take the collected Heatsheets from the finish line collection area to the drop off location. Heatsheets will be consolidated with Trex’s regular shipments from the drop-off location.
