Plastic Bags


Some municipalities collect soft plastics through their curbside recycling program while others accept them at their recycling depots. Contact the RCBC Recycling Hotline to find out if your municipality collects soft plastics. Certain grocers, such as Save-On-Foods and Safeway, accept plastic shopping bags for recycling. Contact your local grocer to see if they have a plastic bag collection program.

Charities and food banks sometimes accept plastic bags in good condition for reuse. Contact the RCBC Recycling Hotline for more information on charities and food banks collecting plastic bags in your area.
