Best Answer

Yes. They are made of polytethylene and 100% recycled (usually used to make park benches and other imitation-wood products). This is the advantage of recycling plastic bags instead of buying biodegradable, as biodegradable bags can only be composted (non-recyclable).

They can be recycled. However you would have to empty the trash they hold into the trash can for pick up, then throw the Hefty or Glad bag into your recycling bin. A better choices would be to buy trash bags that are 100% biodegradable. The biodegradable bags begin to break down in 90 days. Regular plastic garbage bags like Hefty or Glad take 1,000 years or more to start to break down.
