I would if I could find somewhere to do it -- it seems like most stores I go in don't have those bag recycling containers anymore. As it is, I carry reusable bags that I try to remember to use as much as I can.

We don't recycle them because we reuse the few we get (when not using reusables) as wastebasket liners.

Hannaford has a place to recycle plastic bags. It's right by where you take your soda bottles/cans.

Not at the Hannaford I go to, sadly, and I didn't see one last time I was at the closest Price Chopper, either.
