Ever wonder if you can recycle plastic bags? Well the answer is no! The reason why is because they get caught up in the rollers in the recycling sorting facilities.
Here you can see workers that are having to manually remove plastic bags from the rollers on the conveyor belt system. The whole sorting line has to be shut down to remove these bags.
Don't put plastic bags in with your recycling material. Also, if your material is not loose, but is instead all inside of a plastic bag, there is a very good chance your recycling material will get pulled off the sorting line and sent to the landfill instead, It's best if all of your recycling material is loose!
