Booth # 108 & #110
First Star Recycling, in its 21st year of business, operates Nebraska’s largest MRF in Omaha and a baling plant in Lincoln. Between the two and its brokerage service, First Star processes and markets over 100,000 tons annually drawn from residential and commercial generators from throughout the Midwest. In October 2016, Omaha and surrounding communities and First Star became the country’s first to permanently adopt the Hefty EnergyBag program to divert hard-to-recycle plastics from landfills. Residential and commercial generators participate in the program by purchasing the special orange bags to collect a wide range of not-readily recyclable plastics – such as chip and snack bags, foam fast-food containers and cups, and plastic toothpaste tubes – in the Hefty EnergyBag orange bags. To date, the program has enabled First Star to divert slightly more than 30 tons of flexible plastic packaging from area landfills, by instead sending the filled orange bags to be used as a feedstock for plastic lumber or as an alternative fuel source, and as a heat source for making cement. The Hefty EnergyBag program has since been introduced to other communities, including the Boise, Idaho area. It will soon be launched in Cobb County, Georgia.
