  • I take the plastic ones only if they're blue so I can put my recyclables in them - my city will only pick up recyclables in blue bags and I refuse to buy plastic bags - it seems silly to buy plastic in order to recycle plastic. Otherwise I use cloth bags

  • Plastic, and we reuse it for the bathroom garbage and the bedroom garbage as well.

  • plastic BUT i take a bunch of paper bags to recycle in, thats the only way they will take recycling.

    i also reuse my plastic for garabage bags and such.

    i guess if they didnt offer plastic then i have no choice to take paper.

  • Both plastic and paper. I like the paper ones, with handles, when I have to take things to other peoples houses. And we are only allowed to put our "paper" recyclables (i.e. newspapers, magazine, etc) in paper bags. We use the plastic ones for the dog poop and cat litter.

    I'd like to buy the cloth ones but I'd probably forget to bring them half the time, and they seem kind of small for all the groceries we buy. Eventually I'll buy some though.
