The items listed below are a category of materials called “film plastics” and are covered under the NYS Bag Waste Reduction Act. Do not put film plastics in with other recyclables because they tend to get tangled in equipment at the recycling facility and decrease the value of the other materials. Instead, return plastics bags and other film plastics to large retailers that are required under the law to provide customers with easily accessible in-store collection bins. CLICK HERE to learn more about film plastics recycling, and whenever possible, avoid the use of film plastics in the future by opting for reusable alternatives.
