Plastic Bags & Film

The recycling of post-consumer plastic bags, wraps and film (a category generally known as plastic film)—surpassed one billion pounds annually in 2012, according to a national report conducted by Moore Recycling Associates, Inc.

This represents a 56 percent increase since 2005 when Moore Recycling began tracking this category of recycling. 

Post-consumer plastic film is recycled to make lumber for backyard decks and fences, lawn and garden products, pallets, crates, containers, piping, automotive applications and plastic bags.
