Instructions

Although your city doesn't pick up thin plastic film, you can collect bubble wrap, air pillows, plastic bags, and plastic wrap in a single plastic bag until it's the size of a basketball to drop off at a local grocery store.

Alternatives

Bring a reusable bag (cloth, paper, or plastic) or hand carry items if you’re only picking up a few things. Try to buy products that use less packaging.
