Plastic Bags and Plastic Bagged Recyclables Not Accepted in CVWMA Recycling Programs

Posted on Mar 28, 2018

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.
