Plastic Film Recycling
January 15, 2019 @ 8:00 AM - June 30, 2019 @ 5:00 PM
Drop off your plastic bags, sacks and wrap at SD Discovery Center for recycling now until June 30. Too much plastic is ending up in the river or scattered about where it poses a threat to wildlife and spoils the scenery. Plastic film such as bags, sacks, and wrap is a particular problem because it degrades so quickly, becoming microplastic.
To help recycle we are collecting clean, dry, and empty plastic bags, sacks, and wrap at a drop off point in our foyer for the next six months. These recyclables will be used by Trex to create composite products such as boards and benches.
