Please do not place plastic bags in your blue box. Plastic bags can contaminate other recyclables and can cause costly damage to sorting equipment. Residents can drop off their plastic bags at participating stores across York Region. For more information on the Plastic Bag Take-Back Program, visit York Region's website here. To find participating store locations, try using the Drop Off Directory. Please note that locations are subject to change. Before visiting a drop-off location, it is recommended to contact the store ahead of time to confirm their continued collection of plastic bags.
