The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has joined a statewide public-private initiative to reduce plastic waste and increase plastic film recycling in the Badger State.

The Wisconsin Wrap Recycling Action Program (WRAP) enlists retailers, manufacturers and local governments in collecting recyclable plastic film from their own operations and the public.

Grocery and other retail stores, distribution centers, volunteer groups and local governments can support Wisconsin WRAP by collecting their own plastic case wrapping, bags and packaging material by setting up a local collection program and by registering their locations as community drop-off centers. Private citizens can participate by recycling their clean and dry packaging wrap.

The DNR’s website provides free information on how to recycle plastic bags and film and how to find local drop-off locations. The site also provides free education materials, signs and posters for local governments, businesses, volunteers or civic groups expanding their plastic film recycling and outreach efforts.
