Can You Recycle Plastic Sandwich Bags Curbside? 5

By Recyclebank |

We use them so often, it'd be nice to toss them in the recycle at home, but are sandwich bags allowed in curbside recycling?

Sandwich Bags Curbside?
No. Most places don’t allow soft
plastic to be recycled curbside.

But you can take sandwich bags
to a soft-plastic drop-off station
along with plastic grocery bags!

Some haulers do have programs that allow curbside recycling of soft plastics like plastic grocery bags and sandwich bags, but this is rare. If you're unsure of your hauler's rules, contact them to find out. If it's still unclear, err on the side of caution and keep these items out of your recycle bin. If your hauler does allow them, be sure to follow their guidelines on properly adding them to your recycle bin, and consider yourself lucky!
