What to Recycle
The mission for BagandFilmRecycling.org is to support more responsible handling of post-consumer film. Through better information, we seek to support better decisions and more action: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.
This directory is intended to provide information on known drop-off locations for plastic bags, film, and wraps and information on what types of items recyclers accept from these drop-off locations. It also serves to provide a feedback loop between customers, retailers, recyclers, and producers. The goal is to provide a list of current drop-off locations; however, locations do change. We rely on retailer engagement and crowdsourced information to support our staff in maintaining the directory.
We rely on recyclers of mixed retail film and bags for guidance on what is acceptable in the film drop-off stream. We also reference organizations that provide technical guidance on design for recycling and model bale specifications (e.g., Association of Plastic Recyclers and the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries). Stina engages with various committees to work toward harmonization of recycling information and is committed to collaboration and neutrality in the marketplace.
We are not currently funded to maintain this resource and complete a comprehensive update of the film drop-off listing, so it is important to call locations in order to confirm they are still taking CLEAN, DRY polyethylene plastic bags, film and wraps for recycling. We are seeking support from the film recycling value chain to continue to provide this resource and technical assistance for film recycling and waste reduction.
