 Plastic overwrap and shrink wrap packaging


Recycle it - Bundle with other plastic bags - Blue Cart

Polywrap, shrink wrap, flexible plastic packaging and plastic overwrap packaging is commonly found to hold household products such as toilet paper rolls or water bottle packages.

Separate the plastic packaging from any paper products and other materials. You must bundle the plastic overwrap packaging with your other plastic bags before recycling in your blue cart or community recycling depot.

Tip: Not sure if your plastic packaging can be recycled? As a general rule, if the plastic wrap stretches, it can be recycled. If it is crinkly (like a cereal or cracker bag), it should go in your black cart.
