How do I recycle or properly dispose of...


 It seems like just about everyone has a million of these lying around the house or at least many more than they can use.  Here's what you can do with left over shopping bags:
  • Many grocery stores in San Joaquin County recycle clean used plastic shopping bags, look for the receptacles at the front of the store next time you're there.
  • Some pet waste stations in local parks and along waterways have receptacles that use "volunteer" bags.  These volunteers take their extra shopping bags and place them in receptacles so that they may be used again for pet owners to clean up after their pets.  Not only does this provide a good re-use for plastic bags, it also helps to keep the waters of the Delta clean.

Show off your "green" attitude by using re-useable bags when shopping!
