You can recycle clean and empty grocery bags by bundling all bags into one bag. Single bags must go into the garbage, as they tangle up the machinery at the recycling facility. Produce bags are not recyclable.
Clean and dry paper bags can be recycled. Food-soiled paper bags go in your food and yard waste cart.
Please help reduce waste: reuse your bags, or carry canvas shopping bags.
