Hefty® EnergyBag® Program Transforms Hard-to-Recycle Plastics into Construction Material

Feb 16, 2022

We are proud to announce a Hefty® EnergyBag® pilot project that will introduce a new creative use for hard-to-recycle plastic items. By collaborating with ByFusion, hard-to-recycle plastics collected by the Hefty® EnergyBag® program will be converted into ByBlocks, the first-ever construction-grade block made from previously unrecycled plastics. The ByBlocks can build a range of structures, including benches, bus shelters, and much more. The pilot will launch in the Greater Boise area. The project is projected to divert up to 72 tons of hard-to-recycle plastics from a local landfill. 

The Hefty® EnergyBag® team will also determine the environmental impact of the ByFusion pilot project from beginning to end, through a life cycle assessment. Having a better understanding of the full global warming impact of the material processed into ByBlocks in comparison to other usages of the collected materials will inform how the Hefty® EnergyBag® program and ByFusion may work together in the future.  

“We are always exploring new end-usage opportunities for the hard-to-recycle plastic collected by the Hefty® EnergyBag® program, including the potential to expand beyond plastic as an energy source, which is why participating in the ByFusion pilot project is such an exciting moment for the Hefty® EnergyBag® program,” said Lisa Burns, Senior Vice President, Sustainability, Reynolds Consumer Products. “Seeing the transformation of these challenging plastics into this impressive park bench is a testament to what is possible and what the future could hold for the Hefty® EnergyBag® program.”  

Developed with Dow and other program supporters, the Hefty® EnergyBag® program is a hard-to-recycle plastics collection program that offers eligible residents in the Greater Boise area, and other communities around the US, a convenient way to divert hard-to-recycle plastics from the landfill (learn more about the program here and check here for a list of the participating communities in Idaho). The Hefty® EnergyBag® orange bags can be purchased at select local retailers or online. Once the orange bag is filled with hard-to-recycle plastics, residents simply place it in the same bin or cart as their traditional recycling. The regular recycling truck takes the orange bags along with normal, loose recyclables, and the recycling center then separates these bags from other materials and sends them to facilities that use the hard-to-recycle plastics as valuable resources.  

Congratulations to the Hefty® EnergyBag® team for launching this exciting new project!

Reynolds Wrap® Launches “Turkey Dogs” Two American Passions Combined!

Nov 19, 2021

Reynolds Wrap is doubling down on a distinctly American holiday with recipes that combine the classic Thanksgiving turkey with another unexpected but iconic national food treasure: the hot dog. This year’s Reynolds Wrap Turkey Dogs are inspired by classic – and hotly debated –  hot dog styles and toppings:

  • The Chicago-Style Turkey Dog is a mustard-lover’s dream. This turkey gets its unique yellow color after being rubbed with a combination of celery salt and ground mustard and glazed in yellow mustard. Cooked under a tent of sturdy Reynolds Wrap Heavy Duty Foil, the finished bird is basted in a fresh coat of the mustard glaze before being served over a bed of pickle spears, chopped onions, sport peppers and tomato slices. Hold the ketchup.

  • The New York-Style Turkey Dog packs some serious flavor with a zesty onion powder rub. This recipe is for the ketchup fans, with a bright-red glaze made from the classic condiment. Cook to perfection with Reynolds Wrap Heavy Duty Foil and top with sauerkraut, homemade onion sauce and spicy brown mustard for a New York touch.

  • The Chili Cheese Turkey Dog takes its inspiration from one of the nation’s most indulgent hot dog styles. Coat the bird in a chili powder rub that’s full of flavor and bold spices and wrap it in Reynolds Wrap Heavy Duty Foil for an evenly cooked and juicy turkey. Top the finished bird with shredded cheese, onions and sliced jalapeños for that classic chili cheese dog flavor.

Whether you prefer the mustard-smothered Chicago-style, New York’s sauerkraut-and-onion flavor or  the mouthwatering chili cheese dog, there’s an indulgent Turkey Dog for every guest at the table this Thanksgiving.

“At Reynolds Wrap, we know that people are just as passionate about how they enjoy their hot dogs as they are about their classic Thanksgiving turkey,” said Emanuel De Luca, Senior Brand Manager, Reynolds Consumer Products. “So we’re making this Thanksgiving the most fun yet by tapping into this passion with three Turkey Dog recipes that are sure to inspire debates as intense as whether or not a hot dog is a sandwich.”

No matter which Turkey Dog you make this Thanksgiving, look no further than Reynolds Wrap Heavy Duty Foil as the sturdy cooking companion for easy prep, easy cook and easy cleanup so you can spend less time in the kitchen and more time debating which Turkey Dog is best.

Hefty® EnergyBag® Program Expands Hard-to-Recycle Plastics Collection Option in the Greater Atlanta Area

Aug 2, 2021

The program for hard-to-recycle plastics, already in Cobb County, is now available to households in Fulton, Gwinnett, Cherokee and Forsyth counties

Today Reynolds Consumer Products announced the expansion of its Hefty® EnergyBag® program in the Greater Atlanta area to include Fulton, Gwinnett, Cherokee and Forsyth counties. The program first came to Georgia in 2018, when it was established in Cobb County. As a result of this growth, the Hefty® EnergyBag® program is now available to nearly 1.4 million households across all active programs in the United States.

Developed with Dow and other program supporters, the Hefty® EnergyBag® program is a hard-to-recycle plastics recovery program that offers eligible residents a convenient way to divert hard-to-recycle plastics from the landfill.

Through April 2021, the Hefty® EnergyBag® program has diverted over 1,300 tons of hard-to-recycle plastics from landfills and is currently active in communities in Nebraska and Idaho, along with the five counties in Georgia. The Hefty® EnergyBag® program’s expansion in the Greater Atlanta area strengthens its impact and provides more people with an opportunity to make a difference in their community.  

“The success we’ve experienced in the communities with established Hefty® EnergyBag® programs was critical in helping us expand in the Greater Atlanta area, and we are very excited to welcome these new counties – Fulton, Gwinnett, Cherokee and Forsyth – to the Hefty® EnergyBag® program,” said Lindsey Walter, Director of the Hefty® EnergyBag® program. “With these new counties in Georgia, we are doubling the number of residents around the country who can access the program. One of the program’s main benefits is that it provides an easy way to take the hard-to-recycle plastic items people use every day and help them find a new life instead of having them end up in a landfill.”

Residents in the participating counties can purchase the Hefty® EnergyBag® orange bags at select local retailers or online and fill the bag with hard-to-recycle plastics throughout the week. Participants with curbside recycling access, excluding the City of Atlanta, College Park, Hapeville, and Norcross, can simply place the filled orange bags in the same bin or cart as their traditional recycling. The regular recycling truck takes the orange bags along with normal, loose recyclables, and the recycling center then separates these bags from other materials and sends them to facilities that use the hard-to-recycle plastics as valuable resources.

For residents who live in the City of Atlanta, College Park, Hapeville, or Norcross, or those who do not currently have curbside recycling service, there is still an opportunity to participate in the program. They can drop off full Hefty® EnergyBag® orange bags at Live Thrive’s Center for Hard to Recycle Materials (CHaRM). More information on CHaRM and the items the facility accepts can be found 
here. Participants can also take filled orange bags to The City of Smyrna Recycling Education Center.

“The Hefty® EnergyBag® program is an excellent complement to our residents’ current recycling habits, and the best part is it’s really easy to start participating,” said Kimberly White, program collaborator and Executive Director for Keep Cobb Beautiful, Inc. “Residents who are interested should visit the Hefty® EnergyBag® 
site for all the information they need on what can go in the orange bags, where to buy them and how to get started. It’s simple and helps pave the way for a more sustainable future for all of us.”
