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
more than they can use. Here's what you can do with left over shopping
- 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!
If your business compensates the public or takes this material free of
charge and you would like to be added to this list, call
