Plastic bags are the #1 contaminant in recycling facilities
We’re seriously serious about this issue. Plastic bags of any kind are not suitable for recycling. This includes garbage can liners, grocery bags, produce bags, sandwich and storage bags, potato chip bags, cellophane, and bubble wrap. These recycling rapscallions clog up machinery and wreak havoc on facilities.
Fortunately, special facilities exist to save the day—and our earth. Look for plastic bag collection bins in grocery stores and your favorite retail stores.
