The city of Santa Clarita urges residents to free their recyclables from plastic bags before disposal in
Plastic bags don’t belong in your recycling container. They not only prevent items from being recycled but can also damage recycling equipment.
By recycling properly, you help materials get to their next best use, which in turn saves natural resources and energy.
To ensure your recycling efforts are effective, please follow the guidelines below:
* DO NOT bag recyclables or place loose, plastic bags into your recycling bin.
* DO NOT leave any trace of food or liquid in your recycling container
* DO make room for more recyclables by flattening cardboard and paper boxes
* DO return clean and dry plastic bags to a participating grocer or retail establishment for proper recycling. To find a drop-off location, visit plasticfilmrecycling.org.
