Where Else Could It Go?

Plastic toothbrushes can 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.

Ways to Reduce or Reuse

Instead of single-use plastic toothbrushes, try compostable bamboo toothbrushes, which are available from special retailers.
