Can I recycle items at a Target store?

Select Target stores have a guest recycling station located in the front of each store. The station is available for bottle and can recycling (aluminum, glass and plastic beverage containers), plastic film (high and low density such as plastic bags and bubble wrap), and electronics recycling. 

Cans, bottles and glass are taken back to distribution centers in trucks already making trips, and recycled at local recyclers. We don't add additional fuel or energy consumption as part of this program.

Plastic bags are sold to multiple vendors who recycle and reuse the material. Some vendors convert the plastic into composite decking.

Electronics waste is collected by a national vendor who resells them for reuse, refurbishing or recycling. Anything that can't be reused is scrapped by certified companies that dispose of the materials in environmentally friendly ways. Additionally, we assure you that all personal data is wiped from recycled devices and our vendors provide proof of data destruction.
