Do More With The Hefty® EnergyBag™ Program

You can make a big difference in our environment with small efforts. The Hefty® EnergyBag™ program allows you to recover previously non-recycled plastics – like chip bags and juice pouches – and convert them into valuable energy resources.

As a mom with three kids, I know we throw away our fair share of juice pouches and granola bar wrappers. Now, thanks to the Hefty® EnergyBag™ program, we can recover these clean plastic items and they will be converted into valuable energy resources. Plus, there is less waste filling up our already full landfills. It’s a win-win for everyone.

This groundbreaking initiative was introduced in Omaha, Nebraska in September 2016 and has since been expanded across the Omaha Metro. Read More...
