Effective March 1, 2019, and until further notice, there will no longer be a barrel in the recycle building for plastic bags. The current very low and non-existent market has determined this. But you can reuse them for waste basket liners, cleaning your vehicle of unnecessary wrappers, etc. Then toss them in the hopper with the rest of your trash. Thank you all for helping. Hannaford has a container for their empty bags and Wal-Mart has boxes in their entries for any plastic bags, as well as pellet bags.
