Where Else Could It Go?

Empty plastic chip and snack bags, even those that are shiny inside, can be placed in an orange Hefty® ReNew® bag. Remove all contents before placing in the orange bag.

FirstStar Recycling offers this special program to collect hard-to-recycle plastics in our community. To participate, you can purchase orange Hefty® ReNew® bags, which will be collected through your existing curbside and drop-off site services. When filled with accepted materials and tied shut, the bright orange Hefty® ReNew® bag is the ONLY bag that can be placed in a curbside recycling cart or drop-off site container.

Tip: If the bag tears like paper or is made of mixed materials, such as a paper outside with a plastic-lined inside, it should go in the garbage.
