UW Recycling recycles plastic film, which includes clean plastic bags, bubble wrap, air pillows (deflated), and shrink wrap. Plastic bags and shrink wrap that have contained food or are contaminated in any way are not permitted; please put these items into the trash. This is a self-serve recycling program and staff are responsible for putting their plastic film into the grey plastic film toter at or near the building's loading dock or service entrance. Consolidate all plastic film in a clear or opaque bag and tie off the bag before putting it into the toter.
If your building does not have a toter, you can request one by filling out this form.
UW Recycling will provide a small box for internal collection of plastic film.
UW Recycling responds to all container requests within 2 business days. If you do not receive a response within that time, please resend your request.
