BAG 2 BAG:
Did you know that you can recycle all your plastic bags with the ease and convenience of simply taking your recycling bin out to the curb?
It's as easy as One, Two, Three:
1. Gather: gather all clean and empty plastic bags, including all grocery, dry cleaning and department store plastic bags.
2. Fill & Tie: put all plastic bags into one plastic bag (use any color but black, please. Black bags are easily mistaken for trash) and tie the bag shut.
3. Drop: place the filled bag into your curbside recycling bin for pick up by CR&R.
CR&R, in cooperation with Progressive Bag Affiliates and the City of Dana Point have partnered to recycle plastic bags into new plastic bags.
By recycling your plastic bags, you are helping the City reduce the amount of trash going to the landfill and extending its life. In addition, this will help prevent plastic bags from reaching our creeks and help the environment.
Also, many local supermarkets have plastic bag recycling programs located just inside the front doors. These commercial programs complement our curbside plastic bag recycling program and is available to our residents who are not part of the curbside recycling program. The maps provided below are the most convenient drop-off locations for residents of Dana Point. Dana Point would like to increase the recycling of plastic shopping and retail bags and to help us with this effort or to learn more about plastic bag recycling, click on the following link: www.plasticbagrecycling.org.
