Reducing is better than recycling. Please remember to bring reusable bags when shopping.

Plastic film includes wraps, bags, and flexible packaging.  It is not ideal for curbside recycling collection because it can jam sorting equipment resulting in mechanical issues.

To ensure plastic film gets recycled, bring them to a participating plastic film drop-off location. Empty bags, clean out any residue, and remove closures; only items that are clean and dry will be accepted. Not all types of plastic film are accepted at all locations. Confirm acceptability prior to drop-off.

Only items that are clean and dry can be accepted for plastic film recycling. Empty bags; clean out any residue; and remove closures, reciepts, staples, and tape.  

If you are not planning on taking plastic film to a dedicated plastic film recycling location, then please place it in the trash container.
