The Department Of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) has launched a new plastic bag recycling program in an effort to get more people to recycle. With the new program, people can recycle plastic bags, plastic film, bubble wrap, shipping wrap, pallet wrap, clean Ziploc bags and more. The recycled materials are then turned into artificial lumber to create new items like desks.
