IMPORTANT NOTICE: NO PLASTIC BAGS  The City of Rockville will no longer accept plastic bags in City recycling carts. This includes plastic bags grouped into one bag and placed in the cart, as well as bags used to bundle other materials for recycling.

Look for grocery and retail stores with plastic bag collection bins near their entrances. Find stores that accept bags for recycling at http://m.montgomerycountymd.gov/sws/how/plastic-bags.html.

This change was made due to costly damage that the bags are causing to the processing and sorting equipment.
