CVWMA wants to help you recycle better. CVWMA does not accept plastic bags or plastic bagged recyclables in its residential (curbside) recycling and drop-off recycling programs.
- Plastic bags are one of the top contaminants at local material recovery facilities ( or MRF’s)
- Plastic bags wrap around sorting equipment and cause damage
- Plastic bags prevent materials from being properly sorted
- Plastic bags add additional disposal costs
If you use plastic bags, recycle at local grocery/retail stores.
