    When I emailed my grocery store, this is the reply I received.

    Our locations accept clean and dry soft plastics in the plastic bag recycling bins. Some of the items we take are included below:

    • Plastic package from toilet paper, napkins, & paper towels

    • Overwrap from shipping cases

    • Ziploc and other re-sealable bags (without a hard zipper)

    • Bread & produce bags

    • Cereal bags (soft plastics only, the ones that do not come in a box also)

    • Dry cleaning bags/protective plastic

    • Newspaper sleeves

    • Ice bags, salt bags, wood pellet bags

    I emailed my local grocery store and asked them what exactly they accepted in the plastic recycling bins. They sent me back a very nice reply. So the best solution if you really want to do this, is to email your grocery store and ask them what they take.

    So are you saying that clear plastic that are semi flexible trays and are marked with a 2 or 4 triangle that were inside a cardboard product box can’t be put in our recycle bin?

      No, they're only talking about soft bags and film. I assume you're asking about cookie trays and things like that. Those CAN go in the bin.
