Rockbridge County Recycling is going to begin accepting plastic wrap and plastic bags, beginning July 6th. This will include shrink wrap, plastic bags and agricultural plastic, which must be somewhat clean and separated from hard plastics.
This is a county that is very serious about recycling! They require several forms of reference prior to selling their recycling to vendors, including business & credit references and details of the channels the recycled materials will flow along on the road to being recycled. Their goal is to ensure that if people take their time to recycle that the plastics end up being recycled and not placed in a dump!
