On America Recycles Day the City of Inver Grove Heights is kicking off a 6-month plastic bag collection challenge in partnership with Trex. Plastic bags can be recycled but not in your home recycling cart. Instead, drop-off your plastic bags at our collection bins. Trex will use your bags to make their composite wood, made from a blend of 95 percent recycled wood and plastic film. If we collect 500 pounds of plastic bags, Trex will donate a composite wood bench to our community to award our efforts!
What: Drop off your plastic bags and film at our collection bins.
When: Nov. 15, 2018 – May 15, 2019
Collection Bin Locations: Community Center (8055 Barbara Ave) or City Hall (8150 Barbara Ave)
Accepted items: **All items must be clean, dry, and free of food residue**
