Plastic bags can cause real problems in both the landfill and recycle bins. They can get caught in recycling machinery and hamper the process of going green. Keep Albuquerque Beautiful and the Solid Waste Management Department are teaming up with Whole Foods to curb this problem.
Residents who bring a large bag full of plastic grocery bags to Whole Foods between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. on February 23 will receive one free reusable bag, while supplies last. Help them recycle right and keep plastic bags out of your blue carts. Limit two free reusable bags per resident.
Keep Albuquerque Beautiful is dedicated to community education initiatives and activities focused on litter prevention, beautification, and recycling. They work to inspire communities to help build a clean and sustainable future for the city.
