Reuse it

Save paper bags and gift bags for reuse at a later date.

Recycle it

Paper bags can be recycled in blue carts or at community recycling depots. Paper gift bags can also be recycled, as long as the ribbon or string handles are removed first.

If you live in an apartment, townhouse or other multi-family complex, paper bags should be accepted in your building's recycling program.

Community Recycling Depots

Recycle it

Starting November 1, 2016, we require businesses and organizations to recycle all the materials we do at home, plus scrap metal, clear plastic film (polyethylene) and wood. For more details, please view the recycling requirements for businesses and organizations.
