Plastic Film Recycling
Start a ‘Plastic Film Recycling Challenge’
Step 1. Watch the video to the left. Next, study the resources on the home page of the NexTrex website and also their Educate page. You will learn how plastic bags and plastic films that protect food and consumer goods can have a second life as outdoor Trex decking!
NexTrex has two types of programs.
The community recycling challenge has participants collect at least 500 pounds in 6 months to earn a bench. This program relies on store drop-offs and there is NO pick up offered. Participating groups weigh their material and then take it to the store. Flyer with more details.
The Grassroots program is an opportunity for communities (and other entities) to work with Trex to collect and bale larger amounts of film and bags. This DOES have a pick up option. This option is a good one if your town has a bailer. Flyer with more details.
