Can I bag my recyclables in a plastic bag?

No. Please do not put your recyclables in the containers in a plastic bag. Plastic bags get caught up in the sorting machinery, causing damage and production breakdowns. Plus, the plastic bags themselves are not recyclable. Instead, we recommend transporting your recyclables in a paper bag or a cardboard box (which you can then break down and recycle while you're there!).
