Local newspaper bags are touting their recyclability (not sure that's a word). The bags, along with plastic grocery bags are recyclable but only at select stores (Winn Dixie, Walmart, Lowe's, Target).

These bags along with traditional plastic garbage bags SHOULD NOT be included in your curbside cans.

One of the early steps in recycling newspaper and cardboard is "pulverization." Newspaper bags, plastic grocery bags and trash bags disable / crash the pulverization machine. To avoid this, paper sent to the sorting facility with plastic bags mixed-in is deemed "contaminated," and thus re-routed to the dump ... not only are the bags not recycled but neither is the paper. Yikes!
