April 15th-26th West Bayfield is taking part in the "Plastic Bag Grab challenge", a program of Recycling Council of Ontario, in partnership with Walmart Canada, the Canadian Plastics Industry Association, Cascades Recovery Inc., and Trex invites elementary schools across Canada to learn and take action on plastics waste by reducing their use, while collecting discarded plastic bags for recycling in their schools and beyond.
· Only plastic shopping bags are accepted in the challenge.
· Although the following plastic film items may be accepted by municipal recycling programs or retailers they are non-acceptable for this challenge: food storage bags, clear produce bags, frozen food bags, milk bags, snack bags, sandwich bags, dry cleaning bags, reseal able bags, plastic film packaging, or anything that is not a carry out plastic shopping bag.
· Please remember to follow the 3Rs hierarchy: reduce, reuse, and recycle. Try to reuse a bag as many times as possible before sending it to school!
Please stuff plastic bags into another plastic bag and bring to school for collection.
