"Trex® was founded on the premise that ingenuity can help extract value from what was once seen as waste. In creating this turnkey program for schools, we provide students with a better understanding and appreciation for the importance of recycling by demonstrating how small, everyday efforts can translate into a tangible product and successful business." Bryan Fairbanks, President and CEO of Trex®
