The program is a new solution to handle hard to recycle plastics like candy wrappers, toothpaste tubes, and packing peanuts. The plastics are converted to diesel fuel or used for energy in other ways
On your regularly scheduled recycling day, the orange bag can be securely tied and placed in the blue bin. The bags will be transported, sorted from the rest of the recycled materials, and sent to a fuel conversion center.
Hefty Energy Bags are available for purchase from local grocery and big-box stores.
