Recycle Bag with Other Plastic Films
Newspaper bags can be recycled with plastic film, which are recycled separately from plastic container recycling. Find out how to recycle plastic bags and film.
You can compost newspapers because they are made from paper that is clean and non-treated; almost all modern newspapers are printed using a plant-based ink.
Ways to Reuse
