FirstStar Recycling offers a special program to collect hard-to-recycle plastics in our community. To participate, you can purchase orange Hefty® EnergyBags®, which will be collected through your existing curbside and drop-off site services.

EMPTY and CLEAN flexible plastic food and juice pouches can be placed in the orange bag. Plastic lids and caps can stay on. When filled with accepted materials and tied shut, the bright orange Hefty® EnergyBag® is the ONLY bag that can be placed in a curbside recycling cart or drop-off site container.

The Hefty® EnergyBag® program and list of accepted materials may vary by location due to end processing capabilities. Information and guidelines for the Nebraska-specific program may be found at this link:
