What do I do with my plastic bags?

Plastic bags should not be placed in the recycle cart because they can get caught in processing equipment and slow down material sorting at the recycling facility. An environmentally friendly alternative to using plastic bags is to utilize reusable tote bags when shopping. If you do have to use plastic bags, many local grocery stores offer in-store collection containers where bags can be deposited for proper recycling.
