Shrink Wrap Recycling Tip for Fall

As you may know, we are in the middle of our spring Recycling Run for 2012.  The Recycling Run offers shrink wrap users & marinas an easy, convenient way to recycle shrink wrap covers and scraps.  Just follow these steps to participate:

  1. 1)  Buy Dr. Shrink REBAGS® for $3.00 each from Dr. Shrink
  2. 2)  Stuff the REBAG® with only shrink wrap
  3. 3)  Fill out our Recycling Form to request a pick up week; Bay Area   Recycling for Charities will pick up your bags!

Some participants have raised questions on how to better cover costs associated with the REBAG® Recycling Run program.  It is recommended that shrink wrap installers & marinas who wish to partake in our Recycling Run every spring/summer charge a recycling fee up-front and include it in the installation cost of the cover.  If the boat owner is responsible for removing the shrink wrap, the Recycling REBAG® can be placed in their boat before it is covered.  This way the REBAG is ready and available when the boat is unwrapped, and the shrink wrap can be properly disposed of.
We greatly appreciate your help in the recycling effort.  If you would like more details on the Recycling Run, read through our previous blog, “Dr. Shrink’s Recycling Run 2012”.  Please don’t hesitate to let us know if you have any questions or comments.
