If you haven’t received them yet, you will be South Boston. The City of Boston has new recycling clear plastic bags and they want you to use them. Tight city living spaces and lack of back yards made the ginormous blue recycle bins on wheels seem less than ideal for recycling. But city recyclers can now rejoice! The new handy-dandy clear bags can be stored easily, prevent litter with its draw string closure, and are much lighter than the recycling bins. So now you have no excuse not to recycle.
If you run out of clear recycle bags, you can purchase them at participating stores.
