ShopRite offers new kiosk that recycles flexible-film plastic packaging

The kiosk allows recycling of pet food, snacks, garden products, and more

ShopRite and its store brands Paperbird and Bowl & Basket are collaborating with P&G, Purina, Campbell’s Snacks and TerraCycle to launch a recycling program for flexible-film plastic packaging.

The kiosks offer customers a place to drop off all brands of otherwise hard-to-recycle flexible-film packaging and keep waste out of landfills. The colorful kiosks are located outside five ShopRite stores and contain instructions for sorting the flexible-film.

ShopRite customers are encouraged to drop off their flexible-film waste – everything from empty potato chip bags to potting soil packages – at dedicated recycling kiosks at the following store locations:

  • ShopRite of Livingston: 483 S. Livingston Ave., Livingston, N.J.
  • ShopRite of Stirling: 1153 Valley Rd., Stirling, N.J.

The following items are accepted through the new recycling kiosks:

  • Home, pet and garden packaging
  • Fertilizer and soil bags
  • Pet food and treat packaging
  • Laundry and dish detergent pouches
  • Flexible snack packaging:
  • Chip and snack bags
  • Candy wrappers
  • Food and drink squeeze pouches
