PLEASE NOTE: Over the next several months, Republic Services will be placing an informational decal on every residential customer's blue recycling cart. The decal details information on which materials are and are not accepted in the recycling program. The information does not apply to materials placed inside Hefty EnergyBags as these bags are separated at the recycling facility. Customers who choose to participate in the Hefty EnergyBag Program are encouraged to continue placing their full, tightly tied EnergyBags inside their blue recycling cart for collection.
The Hefty® EnergyBag® program provides participating residents a new way to collect plastics that are not accepted as loose items in the blue recycle cart – like plastic bags, plastic films and dairy tubs – and converts them into a valuable energy resource rather than sending them to the landfill. Remember no metal, paper, batteries, small electronics or #1 plastics are accepted in the EnergyBag.
To participate in the Hefty EnergyBag program, please purchase the Hefty EnergyBags at any Albertsons, Boise Co-op, Fred Meyer or Target location in the Boise area. Please visit the Hefty EnergyBag website for a full list of local retailers. When you fill your EnergyBags, please tie them tightly closed, and place them inside your blue recycling cart.
Materials collected in the Hefty® EnergyBag™ orange bags will be sent to facilities to convert these hard to recycle plastics into a valuable energy resource.
