Where Else Could It Go?

EMPTY and CLEAN plastic snack cups, tubes, or pouches made from #4, #6, #7 or unmarked plastics 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.
