Collect with large Zero Waste Bags

How we recycle


Learn more about how we recycle plastic packaging 


Each Zero Waste Bag is opened upon receipt and visually inspected for any non-compliant materials, then consolidated for processing in bulk.

Consolidated materials are size-reduced through shredding and cleaned in temperature-regulated water baths with agitation and surfactants to remove residual product or other contaminants. Clean plastics are mixed with other plastics to make recycled plastic blends that are then used by various manufacturers to make new products.
