My apartment is slowly filling up with plastic store bags. Is there a convenient place that takes them for recycling? Thanks.

HEB and Home Depot both have receptacles at the front of their stores.

oops...I was at Lowe's yesterday, not the Depot, so I'll edit to say HEB and Lowe's, for sure.

Walmarts also have a bin inside the entry area where you can throw in extra bags.

Cool. Hopefully these places take more than just their own bags.

Toss a few in the car and take them with you when you go shopping, just like the reusable bags. And I never care if I'm using the WF bag at HEB or the HEB bag at Lowes, etc....
