Disposing of Plastic Bags


We are always looking for ways to reduce the amount of plastic waste we handle, and plastic single use bags are a nightmare for many! Here are some different ways to reuse and recycle your plastic bags and film.

1. Return to the shop: lots of larger shops will happily take single use plastic bags back. If you can, purchase a few “bag for life” style bags, which will be replaced for free when they wear out.

2. Take them to a specialist recycling point: some recycling depots do have the facilities to recycle plastics, others do not. Check your local facilities online.
