Smart Sort Bin

Every year, Winnipeg Harvest goes through over 1 million plastic bags. In response to that, Bag it Forward was created to give Manitobans more options on how they can reduce, reuse and recycle the plastic bags already in their homes. Drop off your gently used plastic bags at Winnipeg Harvest, your local food bank or one of our great partners listed below. All bags collected will beĀ  reused to create emergency food kits. Any bags that cannot be reused i.e. they a ripped or have holes in them, will be recycled at a local processing plant.
