Plastic Bags and Wraps Are No Longer Accepted

Plastic bags, wraps, and film of any color, size, or shape are no longer accepted in DC’s curbside single stream recycling bin (the blue cart).

Currently, plastic bags, wraps and film cannot be recycled when they are sent to local recycling facilities. These materials clog machinery used to process recyclable materials resulting in operational problems, facility shutdowns and safety hazards to employees.
