A: Most feed bags for pets and livestock are made of woven Polypropylene plastic (PP, or #5 plastic) and often carry the recycling symbol, but are NOT recyclable. While we accept #5 cups and containers, we cannot accept the #5 bags, for the same reason we cannot accept any film plastic bag, shrink-wrap, bubble-wrap etc. - when processed, the stretchy plastic gets wrapped around the sorting equipment. Even paper feed bags usually have a plastic liner that makes them unrecyclable in the Athens single-stream process. The only large bags we can process are those made ONLY of paper, like a charcoal bag or empty lawn/leaf refuse bag. If your large bag tears easily with no stretching, it can be included for recycling.
