Hillsborough Oral Care Recycling Is a Winner

We met Tim Zavacki over twenty years ago when his parents brought him to our office as a patient.  Well, much has changed during those years, and Mr. Zavacki is now an Applied Technology Teacher at Hillsborough High School and has been since 2002!  He began working with Terracycle, a privately owned business headquartered in Trenton, New Jersey.  It is a global pioneer in the collection and recycling of otherwise difficult-to-recycle packaging and products.


The HHS Technology program was just named a top collector in the United States for the oral care brigade through Terracycle.  Since 2010, he has collected over 1,800 units of oral care recycling which is transformed into both creative and usable products.  Money raised through this recycling program is utilized for materials and supplies for the Hillsborough High School Technology Club.  In addition, some of the money raised by this recycling program is given to seniors as scholarships.

Our office has been working with Mr. Zavacki as a collection point since 2012.  You may watch a video about the benefits of this program featuring Dr. Nadler and Liz Nadler by clicking this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Td44oQSKQu0

Please help Hillsborough High School as well as the environment by bringing your used dental packaging and products (like used toothbrushes, toothpaste tubes, packaging, empty floss containers, make-up containers, etc.) to our office containers where they will be collected.  Mr. Zavacki and Hillsborough High School appreciate your help!
