 Plastic film


Recycle it

Clean plastic wrap, bubble wrap and other plastic film can go in your blue cart or community recycling depot. Bundle the plastic film into a plastic bag (e.g. grocery bag) and tie the handles closed before recycling.

Tip: Not sure if your plastic wrap can be recycled? As a general rule, if your plastic wrap is stretchy, it can be recycled. If it is "crinkly" like the clear packaging used on cookies and crackers, it should go in your black cart as garbage.

 

If you live in an apartment, townhouse or other multi-family complex, plastic film should be accepted in your building's recycling program.

Starting November 1, 2016, we require businesses and organizations to recycle all the materials we do at home, plus scrap metal, clear plastic film (polyethylene) and wood. For more details, please view the recycling requirements for businesses and organizations.
