Plastic, Bags

About

Reuse as much as possible. Avoid using whenever possible.

The City of Madison now requires residents to recycle certain clean bags. These bags can no longer be put in your tan refuse cart but must be brought to one of the many plastic bag recycling drop off locations in the Madison area. You may continue to use plastic bags for trash. You will only be required to recycle clean, empty plastic bags.

WHAT PLASTIC BAGS CAN BE RECYCLED?

  • Grocery, Retail, and Drug Store Bags
  • Newspaper Delivery Bags
  • Dry Cleaning Bags
  • Softener Salt Bags
  • Ice Cube Bags
  • Other Plastic Bags Labeled with #2 or #4

***PLASTIC BAGS MUST BE CLEAN ~ DRY ~ EMPTY***

DO NOT RECYCLE

  • Food Wrap
  • Food Packaging (meat wrap, prepackaged produce bags, etc.)
  • Dark Green or Black Trash Bags
  • Bubble Wrap
  • Drawstring Bags

WHERE CAN I RECYCLE PLASTIC BAGS?

We wish we could accept plastic bags in the recycling carts. Unfortunately, the bags get wrapped around the sorting equipment can cause delays and breakdowns so we cannot collect them with your other recyclables. Do NOT put plastic bags in your green recycling cart.
