Recycling Drop Off at Participating Retailers. Find your closest drop-off location. For more information and a list of what is accepted, go to bagandfilmrecycling.org (formerly plasticfilmrecycling.org) or scroll below. Otherwise, reuse your plastic bags or put them in the trash.
Plastic bags and plastic film materials are NEVER accepted in curbside recycling or at Burbank Recycle Center.
Why? Because of their aerodynamic nature, plastic film material blows away and becomes litter that needs to be cleaned up. Worse, they tangle in the recycling sorting equipment, which adds costs to our operations. Learn more with this enlightening video of what bags do in recycling operations.
REDUCE! Better than recycling, remember to bring your own reusable bags when shopping in order to ”reduce, reuse, then recycle”!
