Ziploc Bags

Put in Garbage/Landfill Recycle with Plastic Bags

Please put plastic bags in the garbage or find a drop-off recycling bin near you. Be sure to call the location and confirm availability before making a special trip. Check to see if your favorite grocery store has a bin– some do!

Make an effort to reuse bags as many times as you can before disposing.

Bags are not accepted in the curbside recycling program because they are too easily contaminated by other waste materials, and can become wrapped around sorting lines (causing expensive repairs).

Must Be Clean and Dry

Food contaminates the recycling process, so rinse and dry your Ziploc bags before recycling.

Ways to Reduce

Use Reusable Containers

Reduce your footprint by reusing storage containers—especially ones made out of glass or aluminum—rather than grabbing a new plastic bag every time.
