In celebration of America Recycles Day, a nationally-recognized day dedicated to the promotion of recycling programs in the United States, I would like to remind everyone that plastic bags are a 100% recyclable product and Hilex makes recycling easy and convenient through our Bag-2-Bag Recycling program. And as a leading plastic bag manufacturer and recycler in the United States, Hilex understands the importance of keeping plastic bags in the recycling stream.
As I wrote last month, Hilex is proud to have placed more than 32,000 collection bins in 45 states and processed more than 79 million pounds of plastic film – numbers that we are working hard continue to grow to make recycling even more convenient and prevalent.
It is also important to remember that plastic bags can be reused in many ways prior to recycling. For a list of great reuse ideas check out this list! And Hilex encourages you to always keep the three R’s in mind: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle!
