Bag Recycling Information and Environmental Reference Sheet
Across the United States, collection facilities determine what products they will accept and which methods of recycling they will follow and these can vary by geographic region. Please check your local government recycling laws and facilities for applicability.
The Society of Plastics Industry (SPI) Code for each of our products is shown below. This code is a universal recycling symbol with a number code that identifies the plastic composition of our bags. Our paper products carry the same universal symbol as plastic, however, paper is not assigned a number code. You will find these symbols on every product page on the site to identify the type of material used and to help you determine the applicability of recycling in your area.
Please note that recycling programs for all of our bags may not exist in your area. The presence of a recycling symbol does not necessarily mean that the product or material will be accepted locally. Conversely, products that have no recycling symbol present may still be recyclable and will be sorted appropriately by your local collection facility. In all cases, the best information can be obtained directly from the collection and recycling facility in your area.
All of our bags are classified under one of 5 categories:
Recycled PET Bags
High Density "Frosted" Polyethylene Bags
Low Density "Glossy" Polyethylene Bags
Non -Woven Polypropylene Bags and Sheer Elegance Tissue
Paper Bags, Bag/Boxes and Paper Tissue
