WM and Orem are conducting a pilot to determine if film plastics (like grocery bags) can be effectively added to the mixed recycling stream. WM has installed new technology at its Salt Lake City Material Recycling Facility to collect these materials and bale them for sale to a manufacturer for a new life.

Fox13 did a feature on the program which can be seen by clicking here.

You can find more details about the program here.

This pilot will occur from August 15 to November 15, 2023.
