“Thumb Test” Your Plastic Film
Try stretching a clear plastic film, bag, or wrap with your thumb. If it is stretchable forming a shape around your thumb, then it is recyclable. You have a “clear and stretchy” plastic.
If you cannot stretch it then it is not recyclable.
This is just a simple trick to identify a thin and flexible polyethylene plastic film or packaging.
