Plastic Bags & Other Items

Some items not accepted through our drop-off and curbside recycling programs can still be saved from the landfill. Businesses in the community accept these items for recycling:

Plastic bags

Plastic shopping bags (from grocery and other retail stores) are accepted for recycling at:

  • Cashwise Foods
  • Walmart (both Fargo locations)
  • Hornbacher's (all Fargo locations)
  • Family Fare (all Fargo locations)
  • Lowe's Home Improvement

Containers are located inside of the stores near the entrances. All bags must be clean, dry and free of debris/receipts. Please do not place dry cleaning bags in with your shopping bags for recycling.

Some thrift stores also accept shopping bags for reuse.

Please do not place any plastic bags in with your curbside or drop-off recycling.
