Something similar happens when this plastic product becomes waste. Apart from being able to be used as a garbage bag (replacing one that would otherwise have to be used up), these containers are also recyclable. But, again, this does not necessarily mean that they will be deposited in the yellow bin at the end of their life to be recycled: It takes a hand to put them in.  In reality, all polyethylene plastic bags are recyclable, which is not the case with biodegradable ones or the even tougher reusable raffia ones (which Ecoembes claims cannot be recycled). It all depends again on what the citizen does. In this case, the question is: can this recycled plastic be used to make new bags like these again?

It doesn’t matter if they are the good ones with their own sealing system, the white brand ones that were on sale or those simple ones that require a more manual sealing. The question is always the same after taking them out of the freezer and using their contents: what now? Throwing them away as they are would be the most convenient and expensive thing to do. But can they be washed and reused? Is it safe to reuse them for food?

Raw products such as meat and fish can leave bacteria in the bags that can harm the food we put in laterBut not everything is so obviously superfluous or easy to eliminate, especially if food safety comes into play. And that is the key when talking about freezer bags, reminds us Lluis Riera, a technician at Saia, a Barcelona company specializing in precisely this area.

Beginning in November 2019, residents of Bradley Beach, New Jersey, will be able to recycle plastic bags, plastic casing and plastic wrap using the household recycling garbage can. This pilot program, created by the Borough of Bradley Beach Borough in partnership with SC Johnson, is the first plastic cover household recycling program in the state.
