W.R.A.PWRAP Champion Communities help to:

  • Protect the environment
  • Increase waste diversion from landfills and reduce litter
  • Deter unwanted film from entering material recovery facilities (MRFs)
  • Reduce needed waste management resources
  • Support the local economy and jobs

Become a WRAP Champion Community by taking one or more of the following actions:

  • Check your local listings of recycling locations in the Drop-off Directory to make sure they are accurate.
  • Educate residents and businesses about what plastic film can be recycled and how to do it properly by listing resources on your website and adding information to mailers or newsletters.
  • Encourage consumers and businesses to use drop-off collection points to recycle plastic film. Currently, drop-off collections capture the best quality material.
  • Encourage local retailers to set up new collection programs and provide existing programs with signage to show examples of plastic film that can be collected along with plastic bags..
  • Share photos or stories of plastic film recycling in your community.
