And the beer is original and great. I loved the Ginga’ Ninga, a pale ale brewed with fresh ginger. Even the can is beautiful!

And, in addition to the great beer, they use recycled and recyclable plastic six pack rings.

So I’m trying to find a place to recycle plastic that cannot go into my curbside recycling bin. I’m having a hard time, and maybe you are too. Here’s what I’ve found:

At Plastic Film Recycling, I can recycle the following things.

Please recycle only clean, dry plastic bags and film. Remove receipts or any other items from bags.

Examples include:how-2recycle

  • Retail, carryout, produce, newspaper, bread, and dry cleaning bags (clean, dry and free of receipts and clothes hangers)
  • Zip-top food storage bags (clean and dry)
  • Plastic shipping envelopes (remove labels), bubble wrap and air pillows (deflate)
  • Product wrap on cases of water/soda bottles, paper towels, napkins, disposable cups, bathroom tissue, diapers, and female sanitary products
  • Furniture and electronic wrap
  • Plastic cereal box liners (but if it tears like paper, do not include)
  • Any film packaging or bag that has the How2Recycle Label shown at right

I really try to not buy these things, but I do sometimes buy paper towels and toilet paper wrapped in plastic as well as cases of prescription dog food wrapped in plastic. And I have my suits dry cleaned sometimes. So this will be helpful to me, though I won’t be recycling lots of items. I first choose “reduce and refuse” over “recycling.”

There is a location drop off finder at the website as well. I am reducing my waste. Hope you’ll do the same!
