We’re All About Recycling 

Although recycling rates in the U.S. have crept up over the decades, the number still hovers at a dismal 25%. Just 5% of the 220 pounds(!) of plastic the average American consumes each year gets recycled and the rest ends up in landfills where it takes hundreds of years to degrade. We know how confusing recycling can be as it varies from state to state and town to town. We Fill Good is here to be your resource and to provide in-store recycling opportunities.
