NexTrex Recycling Program

June 1-December 1, 2021: The City of Green Bay is participating in NexTrex® Recycling Challenge! NexTrex plastic recycling bins are located at the Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary Nature Center and Observation Building as well as City Hall. Items accepted include:

  • Grocery bags
  • Bread bags
  • Bubble wrap
  • Dry cleaning bags
  • Newspaper sleeves
  • Ice bags
  • Plastic shipping envelopes
  • Ziploc & other reclosable food storage bags
  • Cereal bags
  • Water bottle case overwraps
  • Salt bags
  • Pallet wrap/film/bags
  • Produce bags

This program keeps plastic out of landfills, and if the City of Green Bay collects 500lbs by December 1, Trex will donate a bench to be placed within our city. The only requirement is to please donate plastic that is dry, clean and free of any food residue. 

View the NexTrex Recycling Program Flyer (PDF) or visit the NexTrex website for information about this program.
