Tip: Plastic bottles shorter than 3" (or the palm of your hand) should be placed inside a larger plastic container of the same number. (For example: A small #1 bottle can fit inside a larger #1 bottle that you plan to recycle.)

Where Else Could It Go?

EMPTY and CLEAN plastic spice containers can also be placed in an orange Hefty® ReNew® bag.

First Star 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.

The Hefty® ReNew® program and list of accepted materials may vary by location due to end processing capabilities. Information and guidelines for the Nebraska-specific program may be found at this link:
