What To Do With Return to A-Z Guide

Bubble wrap

Bubble wrap, which is commonly used as packing material, is accepted for recycling at the Drop-Off Station. Bubble wrap that is in good condition is accepted at the ReUse Center.


Recycle Right!

Just like plastic bags, it is bad to throw bubble wrap in your curbside recycling bin. When the materials are going through sorting machines, bubble wrap will get caught in the machinery and jam it.


Live Zero Waste!

Bubble wrap is reusable as long as most of the bubbles are still full of air.
