Since the bag ban my local ShopRite is no longer collecting and recycling plastic bags. Any recs on where to recycle my years worth of bags I have hoarded?

They don’t get recycled. It’s a myth, like recycling in general, only way worse. Find someone with a cat that needs to clean out a litter box regularly. Give them to them and they will love you for it.

This!! I was just thinking how much I’d love to take those plastic bags off of their hands for that exact reason 🤣

Target, Acme and Wegmans still have collection bins for them.

Honestly, like others have said: give them to a cat owner, use them for your trash (maybe for smaller waste bins?), etc.

I’m sure animal shelters will take them.

Post them for free locally. Someone will gladly take them off your hands. I use my hoard for my small trash cans.

I’d be happy to take some of your bathroom garbage can liners. Unfortunately, I think you need to include them in your regular trash.

Kohls has bins near the pick up/returns section

I use mine as trash can liners. I still have a few left. What county are you in. I would gladly use them.

Doesn't matter anyway as they don't actually recycle them. You raised a stink so they put an extra receptacle out but they're just dumping it into their trash dumpster.
