Newspaper Bags

Curbside Recycling

Must be clean & wrapped in a clear plastic bag in order to be placed in the recycables cart. (Note: El Cerrito does not accepted plastic bags or film in their recycables cart anymore)

Must Be Dry and Clean

If newspaper bags are wet or dirty, they cannot be recycled because they would contaminate the plastic recycling. Make sure to put them in the trash.

Ways to Reduce

Go Digital

Everything seems to be going digital, so why not also get a digital subscription to your favorite paper. 

Buying From the Newsstand

There’s always the option of buying newspapers from a stand, instead of having them delivered, so you can go bag-free.
