How2Recycle Label
Making Recycling Make Sense.
Variation in recycling programs, unclear labeling, and inaccurate recyclability claims make proper recycling a challenge.

The How2Recycle Label was created to provide consistent and transparent on-package recycling information to consumers. Currently the label only applies to packaging sold in the U.S.

A special version of the label has been created for plastic bags and films that are accepted primarily at retail stores with plastic bags.

Please recycle only clean, dry plastic bags and film. Remove receipts or any other items from bags*
- furniture wrap
- electronic wrap
- plastic retail bags (hard plastic and string handles removed)
- plastic food storage bags (clean and dry) – (e.g. Ziploc® Bags)
- plastic cereal box liners (if it tears like paper do not include)
- Tyvek® (peel or cut off labels)
- plastic shipping envelopes, bubble wrap, and air pillows (deflate/remove labels if possible)
- case wrap (e.g., snacks, water bottles)
- All clean, dry bags labeled #2 or #4
*Not all items are accepted at all drop-off locations. Please check with your local drop-off location to see what is accepted

This site is administered by Moore Recycling Associates, Inc. through support from the American Chemistry Council. The purpose of this site is to educate the general public, municipalities, and businesses about how to recycle postconsumer and postcommercial polyethylene film that is found in nearly every business and household. Our goal is to increase the quality and quantity of recycled film, which also fosters growth in our domestic reclamation industry. We strongly believe in the efficacy of the waste reduction hierarchy: REDUCE, REUSE, and then RECYCLE. We welcome your comments and feedback (Nina AT PlasticFilmRecycling DOT org).
