Remember, after you are done playing — you can recycle your Saran wrap!

Once your saran wrap game is finished, gather up the saran wrap and set it aside. Saran wrap can be recycled! Most grocers and large retailers such as Target and Walmart now accept plastic bags, wrap and film for recycling. Look for a bin near the front of the store. To find a list of participating locations near you, go to and enter your zip code.

So what happens to it? Most of the recycled plastic film ends up being made into composite decking! So it may just find it’s way back to your home in the form of composite wood.
