Saturday, April 13
Did you know that the biggest contaminant in your recycling bin is the plastic grocery or shopping bag? Plastic bags jam sorting equipment at the recycling center and contaminate bales of good recyclables.
On Saturday, April 13, we encourage you to join us in bringing your own reusable bag when you shop for groceries and other fun stuff! AND, always remember to recycle your plastic bags at your local grocery or retail store.
At select grocery stores, we will have Recycle Responsibly volunteers sharing information about this important region-wide educational campaign. Visitors will receive FREE reusable shopping bags while supplies last. Delmar Loop shoppers will also get Loop Trolley tickets. Details will be posted closer to the event.
Our partner business districts will also have something special for shoppers who bring reusable shopping bags with them on April 13, too!
Funding for the Recycle Responsibly campaign is provided by the St. Louis-Jefferson Solid Waste Management District and the Missouri Department of Natural Resources.
