Global Alignment on The Path Forward

We’ve Joined The Hefty® EnergyBag® Program

Kwik Lok is a proud sponsor of the Hefty® EnergyBag® pilot program in the city of London, Ontario. Designed to complement current recycling efforts, the Hefty® EnergyBag® program establishes a way to collect otherwise hard-to-recycle plastics, like Kwik Lok bag closures, at curbside and uses them as valued resources.

The program helps divert these resources away from landfills, reduce dependence on fossil fuels, increase efficiency at recycling facilities, and improve the quality of other recycled materials. In doing so, the Hefty® EnergyBag® program takes an important step toward a more circular economy and a more sustainable future.

hefty step 1
Collect hard-to-recycle plastic

Fill the official Hefty® orange bag with closures and other hard to recycle items. Make sure the items are relatively clean and dry.

hefty 2 step
Tie the bag

Once filled, tie the official Hefty® orange bag and place in recycling along with your normal recycling.

hefty 3 step
Collected with recycling

The filled bags will be picked up with your normal recycling and then converted into useful resources like energy, fuel and durable building materials.

We’ve partnered with TerraCycle

Kwik Lok Australia and TerraCycle are partnering in a pilot program to create a free recycling program for our bag closures! Every closure collected is a closure saved from landfill, to be recycled and given a second life in a new and useful product.

Participating in your home, office, school or organization is completely free and very easy:

Collect your closures

We recommend collecting your waste in any cardboard box you already have or can obtain. The larger the box the more you collect, the more efficient the program!

Ship to TerraCycle

TerraCycle will send you a free shipping label. Once collected, the bread bag closures are cleaned and melted into hard plastic that can be remolded to make new recycled products.

Small closures, big impact

As a thank you for your commitment to recycling, for each kilogram of bag closures that you send to TerraCycle through this program, $1 will be donated to Keep Australia Beautiful.
