Plastic Bag Swap and RecycleMania at Al’s Supermarkets

Plastic-Bag-Swap-and-RecycleMania-at-Als-SupermarketsRecycle your plastic bags and get FREE reusable bags at events in November
The La Porte County Solid Waste District is teaming up with Al’s Supermarkets again this year to promote all of the recycling programs available in our county. During November, we will sponsor in-store events at all four Al’s locations in Michigan City and La Porte. You can swap those pesky plastic bags – a major source of litter in our communities – for a bag you can reuse time and time again. At each event, residents will receive one reusable bag for any amount up to 50 plastic bags brought in for recycling, with additional reuse bags based on total amount of plastic bags brought in and availability.

You can also learn what you can recycle every day at Al’s stores, snag giveaways, play a game and more! All events will be held from 10 am to 6 pm. Join the Solid Waste District at the following dates and locations:
Thursday, Nov. 6 – Al’s Franklin, 3535 Franklin St., Michigan City
Friday, Nov. 7 – Al’s West, 1340 W. State Road 2, La Porte
