Film Plastic Recycling Locations

Film Plastic Drop-Off

MarBorg is not able to collect film plastics (plastic bags, bubble wrap, produce bags, etc.) from your blue bin. Over the past few years, recycling brokers stopped buying these film plastics from commingled recycling programs because other materials placed in the recycling containers like glass shards and food waste) contaminate the plastics. These contaminants render film plastics useless, thus giving them no value. Fortunately, residents are able to drop off clean film plastics at several locations to be recycled. These consumer-driven, source separated film plastic return programs produce a high-quality material that can be effectively used in a specialty reuse process. See below for more details.
