Plastic Bags Are Not Allowed in Blue Recycling Cart
Please do not put any plastic bags in the blue recycling cart. If plastic bags are found in the blue cart, it will not be collected. All plastic bags/film need to be removed from the cart, then it will be emptied on your next collection day. Residents should place approved recyclables loose in the blue cart.
Prince George’s County does NOT accept plastic bags in any form at the Materials Recovery Facility where the City’s singlestream recycling is taken. These bags jam the sorting machines causing the entire facility to shut down, and it increases maintenance costs. Plastic bags/film can still be recycled by taking them to a local grocery store. MOMs Organic Market, Shoppers, and Giant all have receptacles at the front of the store for these items; as well as Target, Best Buy and Ikea.
Click here to see a video from Chicago showing you why you shouldn't put plastic bags in with your recycling.
Plastic bags/film include: retail bags, plastic wrapping on food, plastic sandwich bags, dry-cleaning bags, newspaper bags, and shrink wrap (e.g. around toilet paper and bottled water). For more information on what kind of plastic bags and film should be recycled at the grocery store, visit: http://www.plasticfilmrecycling.org/.
