ACCEPTED WASTE DETAILS

Cheese Wrappers:  any flexible cheese wrapper that is plastic or foil. * UPDATE:  11/01/2014 Terracycle is looking for a Sponser for this brigade.  In the meantime:  If bag is resealable, it falls under the Food Storage Brigade.  If not, it can still be collected as reasonably clean as a low grade plastic.  Foils must be rinsed, and will now go into aluminum foil recycling.  UPDATE:  no sponsers yet as of May 2015.  But keep sorting these plastics with the film.
