Plastic bags are not accepted in curbside recycling, and in fact when people do put them in the recycling, they can jam up the sorting equipment. However, you can recycle clean plastic bags by bringing them to a drop-off location. Find your closest drop-off location.
Otherwise, place plastic bags & film in the garbage. Prevent litter by putting them inside a bag that has been tightly tied shut. If not, they can easily blow away.
