$20 Brown Paper Bag Program

Dedicated recyclers - this one is for you! Our $20 Paper Bag Program allows us to take any clean, label free packaging  which cannot be recycled through one of our free channels. #1 plastic clamshells, we are looking at you. 

One regular size store(12 x 7 x 17) paper bag can be filled with misc #1, #5films, #6, #7 or even unknown plastics. The $20 fee is to process, transport and often times pay the processor additional fees to ensure that everything in your $20 Brown Bag is recycled.

We will accept all lids (6 Inches diameter or smaller),  and caps, for recycling through this program. Please be sure that they are fully cleaned, have any labels/price tags removed, and they are stored and brought inside of a 1 Gallon Zip Lock Bag. Limit one gallon ziplock bag full.  Caps should be put back on the Personal Care stream of materials for best practices.

  • NO LABELS or price tags
  • MUST be Clean and Dry
  • Clamshells cannot be broken down because the resin code must be on plastic materials in order for them be sorted and processed correctly for making into new plastics. You may however cut labels out of clamshells (do so at your own risk).
  • Limit 1 ziplock bag of lids, 6 inches diameter and smaller
  • (packaging only - Household items and ABS Plastics cannot be recycled in this stream) If you have ABS plastics to recycle please email us.
