Last year’s pilot study aimed at raising awareness of proper recycling of plastic bags, wraps and films had positive results, according to the city of Vancouver.

The “Recycle Right Beyond Bags” program goal is to keep those materials out of blue recycling carts because they clog the equipment at the regional West Van Materials Recovery Center, resulting in shutdowns while workers cut away the tangled plastic.

Under the program, which launched in September, all 12 Safeway stores in Clark County began accepting clean, dry plastic polyethylene wrappers and bags.
