Trex Plastic Bag Recycling Program

The York County Beautification Committee and York County Public Libraries collect plastic bags and wraps to participate in the Trex Recycling Challenge.  The YCBC and Libraries collect plastic bags and film with the goal of collecting or exceeding 500 pounds of plastic in a 6-month period. If the goal is met the groups are awarded an earth-friendly Trex bench, created from recycled plastic bags and film. 

As a reminder, the containers that have been placed at the York County Public Libraries for collections are for plastic bags, film, and wraps only.  These containers are not to be used as trash receptacles, recycling containers (for items collected in our curbside program), or for any purpose other than the intended purpose.  

In order to continue to provide this valuable and important program, we appreciate your cooperation and participation!
