Re: Snack wrapper recycling at REI

I am interested to get any info on the recycling snack wrapper collection thru REI. Is this available at all locations? If so what wrappers are accepted?

I am located in Woodbridge Virginia.

 

Thanks for any info

Hi @MKS - We have some great news for you about the snack wrapper collection program! Every REI store will be equipped with a TerraCycle zero-waste box for collecting these hard-to-recycle wrappers and bags. The following items will be collected in these bins:

  • Candy wrappers
  • Cookie wrappers
  • Snack bags
  • Multipack snack bags
  • Family size snack bags

Let us know if you have any additional questions and thanks again for sharing your interest in this recycling service!
