Film Plastic Pilot Program

Oxford County offers film plastic recycling at four depot locations as part of a pilot program: Waste Management Facility, Tillsonburg Transfer Station, Beachville Fire Hall and the Woodstock EnviroDepot.

Like many municipalities, Oxford County no longer accepts plastic film as part of its municipal Blue Box Program due to the limited availability of recycling end markets for this type of material. As well, these materials are generally problematic and can damage mechanical recyclable processing equipment and easily contaminate other recyclables. The more material rejected in the recycling process, the more material ultimately added to the landfill.

Although the municipal blue box program is no longer a viable option for plastic film recycling, a pilot project was implimented which allows Oxford County residents to drop off film plastic at any of the four depot locations identified above, free of charge.

The pilot program aims to determine how much film plastic can be separated from the waste stream and ultimately diverted from the landfill.

Oxford County continues to encourage residents to reduce the use of film plastics by:

  • Choosing reusable shopping bags, totes, boxes, etc. when going to the store
  • Encouraging food producers, manufacturers and retailers to switch to reusable and recyclable plastic alternatives

What material is accepted and not accepted in the Film Plastic Pilot Program:

  • Only #2 and #4 film plastic accepted
  • Must be clean, dry, and bags must be empty
  • Remove all food residue, styrofoam, paper and receipts, stickers and rigid plastic
  • Avoid loose film, please bundle if possible


  • Grocery bags
  • Ziploc bags (remove Ziploc from bag)
  • Over-wrap (i.e. water bottle cases, paper towels, etc.)
  • Dry cleaning bags
  • Bread bags
  • Bubble Wrap
  • Newspaper bags
  • Air pillow film used for packaging
  • Empty garbage bags
  • Milk bags


  • Chip bags
  • Grape bags
  • Netting used for oranges or onions
  • Food wrappers (i.e. candy wrappers, food bags, etc.)
  • Pet food & treat bags
  • Food pouches
  • Cheese slice packaging
  • Pop up pouch (i.e. wipes)
  • Salt bags
  • Cling wrap
  • Tarps
  • Cereal/food insert bags
  • Biodegradable plastic

Bale wrap


Disposing of bale wrap

Agricultural bale wrap is no longer accepted for recycling at the Oxford County Waste Management Facility where it would be waste and charged accordingly. Bale wrap can be recycled through Switch Energy Corp., which will come to your location to pick up the material.

Switch Energy Corp collects the wrap, cleans and conditions the used film so that it can be reintroduced back into the plastic industry. Switch Energy Corp. is located in Clinton, Ontario and can be reached by phone at 519-524-0193 or via their website.
