For those times when you can't avoid using a plastic bag, retailers take for recycling most clean plastic bags and wrap, including bags from newspapers, dry cleaning, bread, produce. Also return plastic wrap from toilet paper, napkins, paper towels, snack and drink cases, diapers, and air pillows. Take off strings, rigid handles, closing mechanisms, no soil bags or bubble wrap. Also, your newspaper carrier has to buy those newspaper bags. Return them to your paper delivery person so he/she can reuse them.
