Hefty® EnergyBag™ Program
First Star Recycling is proud to announce the Hefty® EnergyBag™ Program which aims to divert hard-to-recycle plastics out of the waste stream. From candy wrappers to potato chip bags, many soft plastics that were previously discarded can now be consolidated in Hefty® EnergyBags™ bright orange bags and converted into energy to produce cement, rather than ending up in a landfill.
The Hefty® EnergyBag™ program will capture tons of previously un-recycled plastics that would have been thrown away and taken to landfills. The new Hefty® EnergyBag™ Program will collect the filled energy bags and sort them a First Star's local materials recycling facility before transporting them to energy conversion facilities. This colorful addition to Omaha's waste management and recycling program has the potential to minimize landfill waste and improve municipal recycling efficiency.
