Recyclables bagged in plastic bags end up in the landfill 90% of the time. Due to safety and productivity, recycling centers do not open up plastic bags to sort their contents. They simply remove the bags and contents and discard them as contamination. If you need to bag your recyclables, use paper bags or cardboard boxes.
