You can drop off the following types of #2 & #4 plastic film at either T&C or Safeway in their designated plastic collection container.

*While Saran wrap is stretchy and film-like, it CANNOT be accepted.  Rather than one type of plastic, Saran wrap is a combination of plastics that makes it unacceptable for the recycling process.
**While frozen food bags look like regular resealable bags, these bags are not.  Apparently, frozen food bags are lined with a preservative that renders the plastic incompatible with the plastic film recycling process.
