If you're wondering what to do with cereal bags and box liners, the good news is that they can be recycled! However, it's important to note that not all recycling programs accept these items, so it's best to check with your local recycling facility to ensure they are accepted.

Here's how to properly recycle cereal bags and box liners:

1. Empty and clean the bags or liners. Make sure to remove any leftover food or residue.

2. Check if your local recycling facility accepts these items. Some facilities may require you to separate them from other plastics.

3. Place the bags or liners in the appropriate recycling bin or container. If they are accepted, they can usually be placed with other plastic film or flexible packaging.

If you're looking for alternative options, consider reusing cereal bags and box liners before recycling them. They can be great for storing small items, organizing drawers or shelves, or even as garbage liners for small trash cans.
