Bread Bags Curbside Trash Plastic bread bags are not accepted in curbside recycling as they can cause a lot of problems such as getting stuck in the sorting equipment. They must be placed in your curbside trash cart. As an alternative, you may be able to recycle your plastic bags, film and wrap at participating locations by bringing them to a drop-off location. Find your closest drop-off location. Toss Tags and Twist Ties Tags and twist ties cannot be recycled, so they should be thrown in the trash.
