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, 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, or Target location in Boise. 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.
