It's time to do some spring cleaning and that means going to your kitchen cabinet to root out all those plastic bags! (I know you have a cabinet stocked full of those bags - admit it!) The buzz is already alive. I've received several questions regarding those plastic bags. Here's the deal:
You can bring grocery shopping bags, bags from Macy's, Target, CVS, and ______ (you fill in the blank) for recycling. Also, you can bring plastic bags from the dry cleaners as well as the bags from newspapers.
Basically, if you have a bag and it's made from plastic, you can bring it for recycling. So that means even those bread bags are acceptable.
We're having the plastic-bag and Styrofoam drive this week*, leading up to the big day on Saturday. Last year, we netted over 72,000 plastic-bags for recycling. I have a funny feeling we'll be breaking that record this year! :0)
* Campus drop-off locations include the Grille (Administration Building), Student Activities Center, Northside Hall, and Wiekamp Hall.
