Reuse Plastic Bags: Not in Your Curbside Cart

Image: Hand squishing plastic bags


Plastic bags, plastic wrap, bubble packaging, plastic envelopes are all examples of “tanglers” – long or stretchy items that can jam recycling equipment posing a danger to workers in our Materials Recovery Facility (MRF). Please help us keep MRF employees safe and do not put these items in your recycling bin. Reuse what you can then place these stretchy plastic items in trash.
