Plastic bag recycling is NOT just for the eco-conscious. We are taking it mainstream.
We work with businesses, organizations and apartment buildings. We do one-time pickups too!
How it works
We set up a subscription and provide you with dedicated bins for plastic bag recycling.
We collect the bins at regular intervals or do a one-time pickup.
We compact the plastic bags and transport them to a recycling facility in Virginia.
Our partners at Trex turn the recycled bags into beautiful decking material.

For businesses and organizations
We match the existing costs of your waste management services so that your overall costs stay the same.
Swap out some of your trash bins for plastic film recycling ones. Less will end up in the landfill, more will be recycled. You will pay less for your trash services and the saved costs go toward your plastic film recycling subscription. It is that simple.
We give you a two-month free subscription, measure your recycling volume and tailor your subscription plan to your needs.
Our one-time pickups services are perfect for that one time you get a lot of plastic film. This could be after an event, a major relocation or after receiving a large shipment.

What you can and can't recycle
You can recycle bags, wraps, pouches, plastic film and anything with the plastic bag recycling label on it. Plastic film has to be clean and dry. We will provide your building with detailed signage and guides about what can and can't be recycled.
A social impact startup out of Washington, DC.
What started as an eco-friendly hustle to recycle plastic film for my building has turned into a social impact business. We know plastic bags are bad for the environment. If we can't get rid of them, we might as well make it easy for ourselves—and for everyone—to recycle them.
Plastic bag recycling is for the eco-conscious. We are taking it mainstream.
Our mission is to make plastic bag recycling easy and convenient for every DC resident.
Plastic film keeps accumulating, from shipping envelopes to Amazon bubble pads and grocery bags. Reducing and Reusing are the ideal solutions, but it's hard to stop using all types of plastic film. Unfortunately normal recycling companies don't recycle plastic bags because they are hard to recycle. The bags clog the gears of recycling machines.
But recycling plastic bags is possible. It only requires different, dedicated equipment. The missing piece of the puzzle has been large-scale collection. Right now in the District, you must take your plastic bags to specific grocery stores for recycling. It's inconvenient and most people don't do it. We will make it convenient—and scalable—by organizing collection where people live and work. Then we transport the bags to a dedicated recycling facility in Virginia.
