Community Work Day accepts plastic check-out bags for reuse
PUUNENE — In partnership with the county Recycling Section, Community Work Day Program (CWD) will be accepting plastic check-out bags from merchants countywide.
In response to this year’s plastic bag ban that took effect Jan. 11, CWD anticipates that retailers countywide will have thousands of remaining unused plastic bags.
“These bags cannot go to the landfill because they may get caught in an updraft wind and get blown out to sea. CWD will accept these bags from retailers and redistribute them to the community for use as dog waste bags and garbage bags,” the nonprofit reported,
In order to receive plastic bags, residents must show three reusable shopping bags to demonstrate that they are prepared for the plastic bag ban.
