Thin plastic films and bags are recyclable but they’re very difficult to process because they regularly get twisted in the mechanical separators and can shut down the sorting machinery. While we are currently working on solutions for plastic films, the best solution right now is to visit www.plasticfilmrecycling.org to search for the nearest drop-off location.
Do you recycle styrofoam (EPS or expanded polystyrene)?

Why do you charge for recycling? Isn’t my recyclable material worth money?
There is a lot of misinformation out in the general public about recycling. While there can be intrinsic value to some recyclable materials, it takes an enormous amount of those materials to be collected, sorted, processed and stored in order to turn those materials into a salable commodity. The large overhead costs of collecting those materials and the infrastructure to complete the processing is the main reason for market-driven costs incurred in picking up recycling containers.
