Blue recycling bags are used for recyclable trash when the disposer wants to clearly identify what’s inside. New York City has recently phased out the use of blue recycling bags and requires residents to use blue colored trash bins for metal, glass, and plastic beverage cartons. Make sure to clearly label each receptacle with a NYC blue recycling sticker. Hotels and healthcare facilities will use blue garbage bags for depositing soiled linen when sending them off to be cleaned. Choose from our selection of blue trash can liners for sale.
