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