We would like to remind residents that plastic bags are not recyclable through curbside collection. All recyclables need to be placed loosely in your recycling cart with the lid closed.
Plastic bags themselves are recyclable, however when they are taken to the sorting facility, they can get stuck and wrapped around machinery during the sorting process causing the entire system to be shut down to be repaired.
We do suggest that you recycle plastic bags. You may do so by bringing them to a grocery or department store collection bin, a list of these locations can be found by entering your zip code at the Plastic Film Recycling website.
