According to The Future of Store Drop-off Recyclability Report by How2Recycle®, the Store Drop-Off program is available to the majority of the population in the United States where individual retailers set up their own collection systems, sometimes in collaboration with specific PE film recyclers or programs. The material collected through Store Drop-Off is recycled into a variety of end applications, the most dominant being composite lumber and plastic shopping bags.
