Plastic bags don’t belong in recycling

February 21, 2008

  As your article on Recycle-mania correctly points out, plastic bags shouldn’t go into campus or city recycling bins. However, there are local stores that do have plastic bag recycling bins.

  Locally I’ve used the one at the entrance to Econofoods. Walmart in Hudson also recycles plastic bags, as do the Byerley’s stores in the cities. 

  There are certainly others. It is easy to stockpile these plastic bags until you are going to be shopping at one of these spots, thus keeping them out of our landfills.
