Can you put your recyclables in a plastic garbage bag?

    It is convenient to use a plastic garbage bag for home storage, but once you carry it to the larger recycle bin for street pick-up, it is advised to NOT put any plastic bags into those bins. Plastic bags cannot be recycled and therefore get caught in recycling machines and cost the plant a lot of money. If you didn’t want to omit the bag when you take it to the larger bin, I would recommend using a brown paper bag instead. This way you are using something that CAN be recycled and not buying new plastic bags all the time (reusing paper bags from the grocery store instead).
