Ways to Recycle Plastic Bags

We tend to collect plastic shopping bags faster than we can find ways to reuse them, until they are filling up all of our drawers and spilling out of our cabinets. These bags take up valuable storage space and add unnecessary clutter, so finding ways to make use of them can help keep your kitchen more organized.

The best way to keep your plastic bag collection from growing is to stop using them altogether by investing in a few reusable bags. For the ones you’ve already stockpiled, fight the urge to throw them in the trash and check out these ideas for recycling them instead!

  • Take them to a recycling center. While most home recycling collections won’t accept plastic bags, a lot of recycling centers do. Some grocery stores also have collection bins for your used bags.
  • Use them as trash bags. Don’t buy bags for your smaller trash cans when you get them for free every time you go grocery shopping.
  • Take them to the beach. Plastic bags are great for separating wet bathing suits and towels from the rest of your things after a day at the beach or pool.

Keep your apartment home at The Quarters clean and organized while helping protect the environment by recycling your plastic shopping bags. If you’d like to learn more about why our apartments in Lady Lake, Florida are the perfect place to live, contact our leasing office.
