Find the familiar 10¢ Box Tops coupon on hundreds of products from General Mills, Ziploc and Kleenex products. Clip them, put them in an envelope and bring them to school. (Remember to ask relatives or friends to clip them, too!) If you wish, you can also shop online at the Box Tops Marketplace and apply for and use the Box Tops Visa card.

We can get cash just by collecting trash! The real benefit to this program is in maintaining a cleaner environment by keeping these things out of landfills. Be sure to continue to collect the following Terracycle recyclables during the summer:

  • Kashi Packages: All Kashi bar wrappers and Kashi boxes (such as crackers, cereal or frozen entrees) are accepted. The boxes should be carefully flattened.
  • Energy Bar Wrappers: Foil-lined energy bar, granola, or cereal bar wrappers (no candy bar wrappers) are accepted.
  • Drink Pouches: Please slit the bottom, rinse out (removing the straw) and let dry before depositing in the school collection bin. NPES will receive $0.02 for every Honest Kids and Capri Sun drink pouch and $0.01 for every other type of pouch.

Please drop off Terracycle recyclables to school.


Go to to enter the rewards codes that you find on Coca Cola products, and designate the points to North Park Elementary School. You can help NPES earn points towards receiving footballs, basketballs, tempera paint and more.
