Mill Creek service groups partner on Recycle Beyond the Bag recycling program

The Rotary Club of Mill Creek is partnering with the Mill Creek Women’s Club and the local PTA for Recycle Beyond the Bag, a recycling program from Recycled in America and NexTrex. Please drop off your plastic bags at convenient collection stations!

From an April 1, 2021, Rotary Club of Mill Creek press release and an August 5, 2021, Mill Creek Lions Club news release.

The Kiwanis Club of Mill Creek is partnering with the Rotary Club of Mill Creek, the  Mill Creek Women’s Club, and the local PTA for Recycle Beyond the Bag; a recycling program from Recycled in America and NexTrex.

At designated collection sites, we will be collecting produce bags, store bags, ice bags, Ziploc and other reclosable bags, cereal box liners, case overwrap, bread bags, newspaper sleeves, dry cleaning bags, bubble wrap, and plastic e-commerce mailers for recycling. Products must be clean and dry.

Partnering groups within Mill Creek will rotate thru gathering bags from the boxes until they each collect their 500 lbs needed to earn a Trex bench. These benches can in turn be used within our community.

We will continue this rotation promptly upon each group’s completion, through the partnering groups, so that every six months each group will earn a bench.

Let’s turn Mill Creek green by recycling plastics that otherwise often get thrown in the trash!

Our goal is to have collection boxes placed at various locations within our community.

The following recycling box locations are up and ready for your donations!
