Are plastic bags recyclable?
No. Plastic bags, plastic wrap and other plastic "film" are not recyclable. Do not put your paper or containers in plastic bags prior to recycling. Plastic bags are a serious problem at the recycling sort facility. They clog automated equipment causing delays and potential equipment damage. Check with your local store, they may have a bag recycling program. If they don't accept them ask them to begin a recycling program.
