Hefty® EnergyBag® Program

Energy Waste Zero

Hefty® EnergyBag® Program

The Hefty® EnergyBag® program offers an innovative way for cities to capture low-value plastics such as film, small form, multilayer packaging, and #4-6 plastics which are typically not accepted in regular recycling programs. Residents in participating communities can collect these materials in the Hefty® EnergyBag® orange bags and place closed bags in their regular blue recycling carts or bins. The Hefty® orange bags are segregated at the front end of the recycling facility and sent to Renewlogy’s Salt Lake City facility for processing.
