Plastic Bag Recycling

    Please Call:

    General Info: Informational website with locations that accepts plastic bags for recycling. Please notice what the drop off center in your area accepts. While some stores may accept all clean polyethylene, others only accept grocery bags. Information is not all inclusive and is believed to be accurate but should not be relied upon without verification. If you have a large quantity (much larger then the store's drop off bin), please check with the manager for appropriate drop off procedures.
