Since plastic bags and plastic wrap are NOT allowed in your recycling cart, here’s an opportunity to recycle them to help the city earn a free park bench made from recycled plastic materials through NexTrex!
Now through Nov. 12, 2021, a collection box for plastic bags and plastic wrap (see acceptable types pictured) is available at Anoka City Hall in the lower level just at the base of the stairs. Drop these items off M-F, 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. (regular business hours). Our goal is to collect 500 pounds or 40,500 of the plastics shown.
No need to remove labels on packaging or zippers on storage bags.
NOTE: ALL bags and wrap dropped off MUST BE DRY AND CLEAN – any contamination will ruin the entire collection and our efforts. Thank you for helping us work towards a free park bench!
