I noticed this little emblem on a plastic bag lined with bubble wrap I got from Amazon. I'd never seen it before and went to their website and was gobsmacked!  We are limited on what we can put in our recycling bins and I always feel bad when I have to throw out any kind of plastic that isn't the "right kind". I try hard to keep plastic to a minimum, but it can't be avoided altogether.
Go here and type in your zipcode to find one of their bins in your area. They have a chart you can print out of what you can put in there even though the bin says "recycle your plastic bags here" and doesn't mention all this other stuff.
There's a ton, guys. Bubble wrap, bread bags, produce bags, ziplocs (!!), plastic wrap toilet paper comes in... please check it out.

That's a great resource! Here's another one that some cities use, https://solutions.recyclecoach.com/. My city has signed up with them so the app works in my area, but not all cities are connected with them.

What a great app! I kinda sorta live in a city just the rural part. We don't have anything very sophisticated at all. I hope others see the link and check it out.
 
You had your fun. Now it's time to go to jail. Thanks for your help tiny ad.
