[greenyes] Wal-M.A.R.T.'s shopping bag recycling collection


All,

Can anyone offer/direct me to substantive evidence that the corporation is indeed directing their collections of shopping bags to recyclers/manufacturers who are turning the material into useable products and that the plastic isn't being used in Waste to Energy (WTE) applications or landfilled?

Relatedly, as many of you well know, not all plastic film is made of the same type of plastic and that chemistry matters! Wal-M.A.R.T.'s collection boxes are full of customer returned #2 (HDPE) bags (theirs and other store's), #4 (LDPE) bags, other plastic, and residuals. Does anyone know what exactly happens to the individual material categories in this co-mingled collection?

Happy Holidays
Stephan
