Soft film plastics should be thrown away. Even bags labeled compostable or biodegradable should be put in the trash as they are not accepted in Truckee’s compost. Instead, consider using, making, or purchasing small cotton bags to bring to the grocery store. These can be stored with your resusable bags and are an easy way to reduce waste.
Soft plastics, known as film plastics, should be placed in your garbage can, or can be brought to a film plastic recycling drop-off location. Find your closest drop-off location.
