Johnson County has launched a campaign called "Ditch The Bag" to make residents aware of what can and can't be put in the recycling bins, and to keep people from bagging their recycles in plastic and putting that in the bin.

The recycling machinery can't handle everything and is costly to remove, according to the county.

So things like plastic grocery bags, plastic film packaging, ziploc bags, newspaper bags aren't supposed to go into the bin.  Neither is styrofoam or glass.
