From the Wellesley RDF:
Plastic bags and plastic film should be recycled in the Plastic bag bin along the recycling wall. Items such as plastic grocery bags, dry cleaning bags, and shrink wrap can be placed in the bag bin as well. According to Wikipedia “Used bags should not be littered: this is unsightly, damages wildlife and exposes fisheries to eminent danger.” “When one ton of plastic bags is reused, as something else other than plastic bags or recycled, the energy equivalent of 11 barrels of oil is saved.”
Please remember to bag your bags and help reduce wind blown litter!
