Plastic Shopping Bags

Plastic shopping bags should not be placed with your regular recycling as they cause problems in the mechanical sorting process. Bags such as shopping sacks should be returned to retailers for recycling. Non-recyclable plastic bags are made out of plastics that are not easily recycled by traditional means. However, they can be placed in the bright orange Hefty® EnergyBag™, and converted into energy to produce cement, rather than ending up in a landfill.
