The Recycling Awakens at the IMAX

Recently at the MN Zoo's Great Clips IMAX theater, staff have expanded their recycling to include plastic wrappers from the packaging of 3-D glasses. While 3-D movies come with recycling options for the glasses, Cindy of the IMAX theater noticed that each wrapper was being thrown away to the dark side... I mean... the trash. Seeing a potential to divert the packaging ("film"), Cindy inquired where it could go and how to effectively collect it.
