Where Else Could It Go?

EMPTY plastic bags -- with hangers, staples, and paper receipts removed -- can be taken to a WRAP program collection site. Look for plastic bag recycling receptacles at participating grocery and retail stores.

EMPTY plastic bags with no metal or paper on them can also be placed in an orange Hefty® ReNew® 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.

Did You Know

Check your labels carefully, as some dry cleaners now offer bags that may look like plastic, but are labeled "biodegradable" or "certified compostable." Biodegradable or compostable does not mean recyclable. Bags with these labels are NOT recyclable because they are designed to break down into organic materials.

Biodegradable or compostable products should be placed in the garbage, or composted through a paid program at an industrial-composting facility, such as Hillside Solutions.
