Recycling/Environment: March 2021

Don’t clean up your yard yet!

Let’s talk plastic bag recycling.

Many folks know that they can recycle bags at their local grocer (NOT in your green CART), but did you know you can also take your PLASTIC FILM to be recycled? The following items are accepted in plastic bag/film programs:

  • Plastic retail bags
  • Produce bags
  • News Paper Bags
  • Dry Cleaning Bags
  • Cereal Box liners
  • Paper towel and toilet paper wrap
  • Over wrap on cases of soda or canned vegetables
  • Sealed air pouches, plastic bubble envelopes (labels removed)
  • Ziploc and other zipper style bags—please remove zippers prior to recycling

Collection cans are located at most Kroger, Meijer, Walmart, Lowes, Whole Foods, Target and JCPenney. Please contact the store to check availability or if bringing a large amount items.

The materials collected locally at Kroger become more plastic bags at the Hilex-Poly recycling plant in North Vernon, IN.

Materials collected at the majority of other retailers go to the Trex Company.
