Curbside Recycling:

All curbsides are NOT created equal. Each municipality have different recycling capabilities. Some only have the ability to recycle paper and aluminum, while others are able to recycle paper, cardboard, metals, glass, & certain types of plastic. So check with your local service regarding Code 2&4 plastics

How do I recycle poly mailers if there is no curbside option?

Any grocery store that offers plastic bag recycling accept flat poly mailers and poly bubble mailers (that are plastic codes #2 and #4). You can look up the locations in your area at: http://plasticfilmrecycling.org/

Or just send them back to PAC Worldwide! We’ll recycle them for you!
