Plastic Film Removed From List Of Items That Can Be Recycled At Waste Site

From Loraas Recycle (who manages the Recycle Program at the Waste Transfer Sites at Waldheim & Mennon)

Based on changes in the market post consumer plastic film (plastic bags, food wrap, cellophane wrapping, bubble wrap, etc) have been virtually eliminated with the new “National Sword” program instituted by China. China was the only viable recycling market for post-consumer plastic film prior to this program coming into effect.

Post-Consumer plastic film was always a difficult commodity to find a mill for – often it was marketed at a net loss. Due to these factors many programs, such as the City Of Regina, never have accepted plastic film. Although eliminating this product is unfortunate – it is a small portion of the recyclable waste stream totaling roughly 1.8%.
