 Plastic - Bags


Recycle stretchy plastic bags and wraps:

  • In your blue cart
  • At a community recycling depot

Bags and packaging that stretch include:

  • Grocery bags
  • Shopping bags
  • Clothing/garment bags
  • Dry cleaner bags
  • Bread bags
  • Sandwich/lunch bags
  • Freezer bags
  • Resealable bags (e.g. Ziploc)
  • Plastic wrap (e.g. Saran wrap)
  • Plastic packaging on household items such as toilet paper and paper towels
  • Bubble wrap

Special instructions

  • Bundle clean bags in a clear, see-through plastic bag (also one that stretches) and tie the handles closed.
  • Put plastic bags that don't stretch, such as cereal or cracker bags, in your black cart as garbage.
