Plastic overwrap and shrink wrap packaging

Plastic bottle overwrap

Recycle clean, stretchy plastic overwrap:

  • In your blue cart
  • At a community recycling depot

Special instructions

  • Separate overwrap from other materials (e.g. cardboard flat) for recycling.
  • Bundle overwrap in a clear, see-through plastic bag (also one that stretches) and tie the handles closed.
  • Put plastic overwrap that doesn't stretch, such as cereal or cracker bags, in your black cart as garbage.
