Bring them in the library and place them in our new indoor collection receptacle. Our indoor receptacle takes many of the plastic bags that we use everyday including grocery bags, bread bags, case overwrap, dry cleaning bags, newspaper sleeves, ice bags, wood pellet bags, ziplock & other re-sealable abgs, produce bags, bubble wrap, salt bags, and cereal bags. All materials must be clean, dry and free of food residue.
