Plastic Recyclable FAQ's

Here we will tell you where to drop off the recyclables, what to look for when you're recycling and how to determine the different kinds of plastic.

Due to overwhelming post-COVID plastic donations, the Eco Plastic Facility is currently at capacity. Eco Plastics is temporarily suspending accepting plastic donations until we get caught up.

What We Collect

When we resume plastic collection, we will start to accept only #2 plastic. That includes bubble wrap, plastic bags, various types of bottles and containers, and miscellaneous bottle caps.

How to Determine the Difference

#2 (HDPE) is one of the most common types of recycled plastic. You can determine the type of plastic it is by looking on the bottom of any bottle or container to find a triangle with a number.
