Plastic Bags

Plastic bags cannot be recycled through your curbside bin.  Single use plastic bags are a significant maintenance and repair issue for the Tri-County Materials Recovery Facility where recyclables that are collected curbside are brought for sorting.  Plastic bags are very recyclable, but only if they are kept out of your curbside bin and brought to a local retail store.  A list of retail locations that accept plastic bags can be found at www.plasticfilmrecycling.com.
