Dr. Shrink plans spring recycling campaign


Dr. Shrink Inc. is once again holding its Recycling Run in partnership with Bay Area Recycling for Charities in Traverse City, Mich., and Optima Colour in Canada.

The company is also partnering with Bay Area Recycling for Charities to establish Recycling Runs in Wisconsin and Illinois.

Participants must buy Rebags for $3 each from Dr. Shrink and stuff them with shrink-wrap only — no strapping, buckles, vents or other contaminants. Participants then fill out a form with their address and request a week for pickup during the spring or summer.

Forms can be obtained by contacting Dr. Shrink; Andy Gale, of Bay Area Recycling, at andy@mybarc.org for Michigan participants; or Shane Mckenna at shane.mckenna@optimacolour.com for Canadian recyclers. The Dr. Shrink, Bay Area or Optima Colour trailer will pick up the Rebags as scheduled.

“Our annual Spring Recycling Run in 2011 was very successful and it's an easy way for individuals, boat storage facilities and marinas to responsibly dispose of their used shrink wrap,” Dr. Shrink president Mike Stenberg said in a statement. “We also encourage marinas and storage facilities to accept plastic wrap from area boaters.”
