Plastic Bag Recycling

Plastic Recycling Bin Replacement Bags

We have been receiving some calls about replacement bags for the Plastic Recycling Bins we distributed last year.  The bins and replacement bags were possible because of a grant from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.  Unfortunately, we are out of the replacement bags that were funded by the grant, but we suggest that you use plastic bags that are used in other bins in your stores, such as trash cans.  You can use any plastic bag that will fit in the bin.  If you have any questions, please contact Tonya Woodruff at 614-448-1631 or foundation@ohiogrocers.org.

Plastic Bag Recycling

Early in 2009, OGF implemented a Plastic Bag Recycling initiative by supplying members with plastic reycling bins. The bins will allow customers to recycle their plastic shopping bags, dry cleaning bags, etc., and also allow members to recycle shrink and pallet wrap.

Once all plastic is collected, it will be backhauled to a wholesaler’s distribution center or warehouse, where it will be baled and sent to a plastics recycling center.  SpartanNash and SUPERVALU are participating wholesalers.614-448-1631 or by email at foundation@ohiogrocers.org.

This program is possible with a grant from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.
