Wild Birds Unlimited Seed Bags are Recyclable!

Our seed bags are made of LDPE 4 plastic, and as such, can be recycled to make furniture and decking. 

Trex is a company that collects LDPE 4 bags to make Trex furniture and deck material.

Trex company provides participating stores with bins to collect LDPE 4 recyclable bags which they pick up for use in the products they make.  Participating stores currently listed on Trex’s website are:

  • Kohl’s
  • Redner’s Market
  • Safeway
  • Weis
  • ACME
  • Food Lion
  • Giant Eagle
  • Price Chopper

We recommend used seed bags be thoroughly emptied and then stored in a container with a lid until taken to the recycling location.

In addition to our Wild Birds Unlimited seed bags, Trex also recycles grocery bags, bread bags, case overwrap, dry cleaning bags, newspaper sleeves, ice bags, wood pellet bags, zip-lock and other re-sealable bags, produce bags, bubble wrap, salt bags, and cereal bags.

Trex only takes recyclable items that are clean, dry and free of food residue.

It’s nice to know that the above stores are providing a means to recycle LDPE 4 plastic bags—keeping them out of incinerators & land-fills!
