Discussion plastic film recycling

by Sarah Dolley (non-member) on Thu, Jan 5, 2017 at 10:57 am


I am trying to find a good option for recycling the plastic film that comes
into our library.  The waste/recycling hauler that handles our other items
won't take it.  Terracycle can sell us a box, but one box is pretty expensive
and we expect it to fill up quickly.  I tried contacting a local grocery store
to see who handles their plastic bags, but it turns out the grocery store
chain transports them on their company's own trucks.  Have any of you found a
good solution?
