Paper Bags

(Last Updated: 1/17/2019)

Clean & Dry? Reuse or recycle clean and dry paper bags. But if the bag is soiled with food, grease, or water, put it in the garbage or in your curbside yard waste (compost) cart.


Clean and dry paper bags can be recycled in your curbside cart. They make perfect containers for collecting your other loose recyclables.

Wet or soiled paper bags should either be put in the garbage or composted in your curbside compost cart.

Contact a food shelf to ask about donating your good condition paper bags or use them for a craft project.

Bring a reusable bag when you go shopping or tell the cashier you do not need a bag when you have small purchases.
