How can I recycle plastic bags?  most Kroger, Wal-Mart, and Publix and other grocery stores take plastic bags for recycling at the front of their stores. As an precycle alternative, choose reusable market bags. uses about 1.5 billion recycled plastic bags each year to manufacture decking products. Recycle plastic bags and film, newspaper bags, plastic dry cleaning bags, all bags labeled #2 or #4.
