Pellet Bag Recycling


Pellet fuel: another packaging dilemma that has a solution

The heating industry has considerably shifted toward biomass stoves and heating devices based on efficient combustible and renewable resources. Pellet stoves have become a viable, economical, and popular option for home heating systems in the last ten years.

     Currently, you CAN NOT recycle pellet fuel bags with other plastic bags at store drop off collection bins, you must recycle them at certain locations that accept pellet fuel bags.  **Please make sure to deliver them flattened out, not crammed into other bags.  The bags get loaded flat onto balers and it takes time and energy to flatten them all.  It also takes up more space in the donation bins when they are not flat.  Thanks for your help!
 Thank you to Franklin County Waste Management who has received a grant to use these great donation stations built by Ken Johnson of Bernardston.

Current locations accepting pellet bags for recycling: (More coming soon for the 2014/2015 heating season!)
