The Hefty® EnergyBag® Program

The Hefty® EnergyBag® program is a groundbreaking initiative that collects hard to recycle plastics – like the candy wrappers and juice pouches you’ve always thrown away –  at curbside and converts them into useful resources. 

The Hefty® EnergyBag® Program is a significant step towards achieving positive long-term environmental and economic advantages, including new alternative energy resources and fewer tons of plastics ending up in landfills.

How does the Hefty® EnergyBag® Program Work?

1. Fill the official Hefty® orange bag with plastics that are hard to recycle. If you have any questions about what you can include in the bags, browse our FAQs.

2. Once filled, tie the official Hefty® orange bag and place in your recycling along with your normal recycling.

3. The filled bags will be picked up with your normal recycling and then converted into useful resources like energy, fuel and durable building materials.
