Hefty/Great Value Recycling Bags Settlement
A settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit against Reynolds Consumer Product. Plaintiffs allege that Reynolds’ use of the claim Recycling on the packaging misrepresented that its Recycling trash bags under the Hefty and Great Value brands were recyclable because “Recycling” trash bags are not recyclable at many solid waste disposal facilities and are not suitable for the disposal of recyclable products at solid waste disposal facilities. Reynolds denies all the allegations made by Plaintiffs. The Court has not decided in favor of the Plaintiffs or the Defendants. Instead, both sides have agreed to a settlement.
You may be a member of the Settlement Class if you purchased Hefty or Great Value brand Recycling bags from July 20, 2018, through August 30, 2023. A full list of the Hefty and Great Value brand Recycling bags included in the settlement can be found below.
