Plastic Bags, Wrap, and Film

(Last Updated: 7/15/2021)

Plastic bags, wrap, and film are not recyclable in your curbside recycling bin because they get caught in sorting machines.

However, you can recycle certain bags and wrap in collection bins at participating local grocery stores and retailers. Visit to learn which items are accepted and find a drop-off site.

Bags must be clean, dry, and free of food residue. 


Reuse as a garbage can liner, as a dog poop bag, or ask a local farmers market vendor if they could use your clean and dry plastic bags.

Dirty or wet plastic bags should be put in the garbage.
