Plastic Bag Recycling

Please remember that plastic bags other than the “blue bags” are NOT accepted at the curb. To recycle:

  • plastic grocery and shopping bags
  • produce bags
  • drycleaning bags
  • similar plastics

Gather up your clean and empty bags (no receipts), and take them to a grocery store with a plastic bag recycling bin. These bins are located in the front of participating stores.

You’ll help keep bags from blowing around alongside our roadways, rivers and streams.
