Bags and Beyond Recycling Program

As you know, our local trash and recycling companies do not accept plastic bags because they clog the sorting machines, and consequently many of the bags end up in the landfills and oceans. WHCA is joining with several groups to collect these bags and similar materials to be used for decking materials by Trex, Inc.

Please save and bring the plastic items listed below to 8418 Hayden Lane and put them in the plastic container labeled “TREX” in the driveway.

Items to include are plastic grocery bags, LDPE/HDPE films, newspaper sleeves, bread bags, ziplock bags, product wrap, cereal liners, food storage bags, ice bags, pellet bags, produce bags, dry cleaning bags, grocery bags, case overwrap, packaging air pillows and salt bags. Please be sure that these items are clean and dry.

Do not include:

  • Degradable/compostable bags
  • Pre-washed salad mix bags
  • Frozen food bags
  • Candy bar wrappers
  • Chip bags
  • Six-pack rings

Here are a couple of ways for you to tell its polyethylene or not:

1.      Check to see if the packaging is labeled with at 2 or 4.  If so, it can be included.

2.      See if the packaging will stretch when you pull it.  If so, it can be included.

3.      Is the packaging shiny or does it make a crinkly/crunchy sound.  If so, it’s NOT acceptable.
