PlasticBagRecycling.org

is a great resource for more plastic bag recycling information as well as a list of recyclers in your area.

Tip:
If you are purchasing these types of products and would like to recycle your bags, but do not have a plastic bag recycle center near you, you might consider saving the bags in a box. When the box is full, ship them to the recyclers. Most of these products are clean, so this should not pose a health issue.

 

"We are afraid to care too much, for fear that the other person does not care at all." - Eleanor Roosevelt
