We are thinking spring already and preparing for our annual Recycling Run for 2012. Dr. Shrink is once again teaming up with Bay Area Recycling for Charities (BARC) for the third year in a row in an effort to make sure shrink wrap is recycled properly every spring.
Shrink wrap will NOT biodegrade in a landfill, so it is important to have it recycled. Our Recycling Run program makes it simple and straightforward:
- 1.Buy Dr. Shrink REBAGS® for $3.00 each from Dr. Shrink
- 2.Stuff the REBAG® with ONLY shrink wrap (no buckles, strapping, access doors, etc.)
- 3.Request a pick-up form from Dr. Shrink to schedule a pick up
Pickup regions are all throughout Lower Michigan and we have expanded this year into Wisconsin and Illinois as well. The Wisconsin Marina Association is working to start the program in their state and BARC will be doing the pickups within all three states. Optima Colour is also participating in the effort for the second year, and will be doing pickups in Ontario, Canada (within 200 miles of Toronto).
If you are curious about removing a shrink wrap cover properly for the Recycling Run, please reference this video below.
