We do our best to be a zero waste business and would like to help everyone in reducing waste in your own homes too. Film plastic is not collected curbside in Bellingham but can be brought directly to Northwest Recycling. Please leave your clean, dry film plastics stuffed into a bag or bags in your bin (instead of loose in the bin) and we will recycle them for you. Film plastics are all the thin plastics that are used for such things as shrink-wrap, Ziplocs, produce bags, cereal bags, etc.
As always, reducing use of these plastics is best when possible. Additionally, in the last few years SSC has added a few items to the home recycling list. You can now add yogurt type containers as well as clamshell containers to your household recycling. Clamshells are the clear plastic containers with a hinged lid that hold cherry tomatoes or strawberries, for example. They do request that you cut the lids off and stack them in order to save space.
