Plastic “stretchable” film is no longer an acceptable item for the blue cart program. A few examples include grocery bags, packaging wrap, frozen food bags. Regardless if these items have a recycling symbol, we are unable to accept or process them.
Always remember to reduce and reuse before you recycle. If you have excess plastic grocery bags, you can take them back to participating retail or grocery stores in your community or visit SWRC.ca to find a location close to you. Please see the City of Saskatoon’s FAQ’s on Plastic Fim here for additional information.
