REACT NO LONGER ACCEPTS STRETCHABLE PLASTICS IN THE RECYCLING!!!
This includes plastic bags, shopping bags, food wrap, cellophane wrapping/packaging, etc.)
“...the markets for post-consumer plastic film (plastic bags, food wrap, cellophane wrapping/packaging, etc.) have been virtually eliminated with the new “National Sword” program instituted by China. The only viable recycling market for post-consumer plastic film was in China prior to their new program coming into effect.
In order to ensure we can successfully recycle mixed paper and maintain viability of the recycling system, we are eliminating post-consumer plastic film from the material we can receive for processing at our plant, effective immediately. ” - Loraas Environmental
Please place all plastic bags and film in your waste bins/carts.
Also NOT acceptable in recycling:
Paper coffee/pop cups & lids
Bags of household garbage
