Stand-up flexible pouches

Put stand up pouches in your black cart as garbage.

Examples of items that use stand up pouches include:

  • Frozen fruit and frozen vegetables
  • Cereal
  • Beef jerky
  • Coffee
  • Trail mix
  • Dried fruit
  • Shredded cheese
  • Dishwasher and laundry detergent tabs
  • Dog food
