Plastic bags

Recycling & Reuse Options

General Recycling Information:

Recycle: Bring plastic bags back to the store to  recycle. Both Nugget stores and the West Covell CVS Pharmacy (Longs)  will take back all plastic bags for recycling (shopping bags, bread  bags, produce bags, newspaper rain bags, etc.). Always make sure the  bags are clean and dry before recycling.

Most stores that take  back plastic bags for recycling will also accept all bags labeled  plastic #2 or #4, including dry-cleaning bags (remove paper and  hangers), bread bags, produce bags, wraps from paper towels, bathroom  tissue, napkins, and diapers, plastic newspaper bags, mattress bags,  retail bags (remove hard plastic or string handles), zip lock bags  (remove hard components), cereal box liners, plastic shipping envelopes  (remove labels), case wrap (e.g., snacks, water bottles), and furniture  and electronic wrap.

Receipts, debris, and other contaminants  may prevent bags from being recycled properly, so make sure all bags and wraps are clean, dry and empty.  Storing plastic bags and product wraps in a plastic bag offers neat, convenient storage. Simply knot the  handles when you’re ready to drop them off at your local grocer or  retailer.  

Reuse: Reuse a plastic bag by lining your trash can, carry your lunch to school/work or take it with you  when you walk your dog. You can also bring your plastic shopping bags to the SPCA Thrift Store or All Things Right and Relevant (R&R)  Consignment for reuse.

What's better than choosing a paper or plastic bag? B.Y.O.B.! Bring Your Own Bag when you shop and reduce waste!
