From milk jugs and detergent bottles, to produce bags and cereal liners, plastics help make everyday life more convenient.
Many plastic containers and packages can be disposed of via curbside recycling, but did you know plastic films are recyclable, too? Using the store drop-off program available at thousands of grocers and retail stores throughout the U.S. and Canada, plastic films can be recycled for use in future goods like composite lumber used in decking or post-consumer resin used to make pallets, crates, bags and more.
Check out the videos below to learn more about how to identify plastic films around your home and help double film recycling by 2020.
Be sure to follow us on social media using #imafilmrecycler during the week of April 18 to learn more about how you can recycle plastics.
