IT’S IN THE BAG

Did you know it can take hundreds of years for plastic bags to breakdown in landfills and when they do, harmful toxins are released into the soil?  Or that grocery bags, dry cleaning bags, bread bags and produce bags cause severe complications in processing machines when mixed with your curbside recyclables, but can be easily recycled at your local grocery store?

It’s in the Bag Day
Saturday, October 1, 2016 from 8 a.m. – Noon
All Scottsdale Safeway stores
Bring every type of plastic bag and plastic film packaging you have and learn how they can be recycled and what products will be made from them.  Best of all, your plastic bags will be exchanged for a reusable and recyclable Keep Scottsdale Beautiful bag!
