Plastic Bag Recycling

Why recycle your plastic shopping bags?

Plastic shopping bags can be reused many times and then recycled into new plastic bags to be used again and again. Plastic bags are also recycled into plastic lumber products, waste and recycling containers, patio furniture and park benches etc.

Plastic Bag Recycling. It's easy!

  • Simply turn bags inside out.
  • Remove all receipts and all other contents.
  • Stuff empty plastic bags into another bag.
  • Drop off your plastic bags at participating stores.

Why bring your own reusable bag?

Because it is something we can all do to make a positive impact on the environment. Keep bags handy wherever you go so that when you make a purchase, you can reuse your own bag.

Keep them in:

  • Your car, van or truck
  • Your purse or backpack
  • Your child's stroller

Plastic bag collection bins

This is a retailer managed program through which consumers will be able to return their unwanted plastic bags to participating retail stores for recycling into new bags or other products. Only stores in the Region of Durham with designated collection bins will take these bags. Ask your local retailer if they have a bin for your recycling convenience.
