Under ZERO circumstances should plastic bags ever go into the curbside bin.
NO PLASTIC BAGS OF ANY KIND (like glass), EVER, GO INTO THE CURBSIDE BIN.
Let’s say it all together now: “I will never ever put plastic bags into my curbside bin!”
This also includes any plastic bag you may use in your home to collect your recyclables. Dump the recyclables in the bin, not the plastic bag.
Now, when you have a collection of plastic bags of any kind (from the grocery store or the bag that wraps the newspaper) you can drop them at Recycle Utah in the Plastic Bag Bin.
While we are on plastic bags, NO PLASTIC WRAP OF ANY KIND CAN GO IN THE CURBSIDE BIN.
If you can easily hold the plastic in the palm of your hand and then close your hand and make a fist it can not go in the bin.
