Film Plastic Recycling

Ablitt’s Recycle

Thank you for considering recycling your film plastic with Ablitt’s Planet Protector program! Scroll down and fill out our form to join our Planet Protectors email invite list.  You will receive an email before every event, if you have plastic you want to recycle, and are available on that day and hour, fill out the form. We look forward to seeing you! You will only receive a reply if the event is full.

All events are held outside, behind the Ablitt’s Fine Cleaners building. And currently, masks are required. Please park on the street, or in the city lot across the street from Ablitt’s when you come to the events. You will see our event sign when you arrive which will direct you to the event.
