Plastic Food Storage Bags

Not Accepted, Alternative Options Available

PL Food Storage Bags Group

DO NOT place plastic bags in a City of Omaha curbside recycling cart or drop-off site container.

Place plastic food storage bags like Ziploc® or other seal-top baggies in the garbage, or use an alternative option.

Where Else Could It Go?

EMPTY and CLEAN plastic bags can be taken to a WRAP program collection site. Look for plastic bag recycling receptacles located at participating grocery & retail stores.

WRAP Locations

EMPTY and CLEAN food storage bags can also be placed in an orange Hefty® EnergyBag.

FirstStar Recycling offers this 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. 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.

Ways to Reduce or Reuse

Switch to reusable! Reduce single-use plastic waste by investing in a set of washable, silicone snack pouches or other reusable containers to store your food.
