    I had no idea that so many types of plastic wrap/bags could be recycled. There is a drop off place in MG.

    Have been collecting these mailers with the recycle sign in my car for several months now—finally brought in about 25. (I need to cut back on Amazon; I do notice they are using more paper mailing bags lately).  They can be placed in plastic bag recycling bins at Target and Cub.

      I didn't know those bags had a drop off. I have also reused them to send items to my kids and just put a new address label over the prime label.
