“All plastic bags need to be clean, dry, and free of food residue,” stated an OBWC press release. “Club members have also requested that the bags be flattened out before putting them in the designated receptacles.”

At the end of the six-month period, Trex Company, Inc. will recycle the bags into a bench to be located within the Outer Banks community. “Trex Company, Inc. is the world’s largest manufacturer of wood-alternative composite decking, railing, and other outdoor items made from recycled materials,” the release continued.
