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

March 28, 2018 | Published by Nancy Drumheller

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.
