Plastic Recycle Drive
Recycle Beyond the Bag!
Plastic Bag Collection Drive Helps Sustainability
Feeling overwhelmed with all the plastic bags in your life?
- 160,000 plastic bags are used every 5 seconds
- 5 trillion are used every year worldwide
- They’re used only for an average of only 12 minutes
- They take well over 500 years to break down into micro-plastics that pollute our water and many organisms
Now, are you feeling overwhelmed?
Have no fear, Heckrodt Wetland Reserve has partnered with Trex Decking for a plastic recycle drive to provide you with a drop off site for your clean and dry plastic bags. We accept:
- Produce & Bread Bags
- Ziploc Bags
- Grocery Bags
- Bubble Wrap
- Cereal and Ice Bags
- Dry-Cleaning Bags
- Shopping Bags
- Birdseed Bags
Help us make a difference in the world! Plus, if we raise over 500 pounds, Heckrodt will get a free recycled bench!
The collection of bags for our plastic recycle drive will continue indefinitely.
So, how did we do in 2021?
